3D GIS gives BCA appraisers the ability to collect property data on key market drivers for high-rise condos in Vancouver without leaving the office. Views significantly impact condo prices, but are difficult to quantify without gaining entry to units. Using view and sightline analysis tools, appraisers can quantify and recreate property views, resulting in more accurate assessments. 3D GIS expands the depth of market analysis, and proves useful for a range of real estate industry professionals.
