Engaging Taiga Project Stakeholders by using 3D visualization and time
Authors: Andrew Tomlinson
Located in the Cold Lake region of Alberta, the Taiga Project operated by Osum Oil Sands Corp. has been approved by the regulator and first production is expected in 2016. Clear communication of technical information during the consultation period was essential. Maps are 2D representations of a 3D world and are easily misinterpreted. Osum utilized a 3D visualization of the existing conditions and planned development based on 3D modelling to help guide stakeholders’ understanding of the project.
