Using 3D GIS to Assist Executive Decision Making.
Track: 3D and Lidar Data
Authors: Derek Hunt
GIS gave us the advantage to visually show the cost prohibitive environmental factors related to the construction of new sewer mains as proposed.
This was accomplished through the development of a terrain dataset. 2012 Lidar based contour lines were clipped to the study area, and then converted into a terrain model to be used in ArcGlobe. Layers were then draped over the terrain to show that although some areas seemed suitable to build, they are in fact, very cost prohibitive.
