Shedding light on 3D GIS: coupling immersion, City Engine and LumenRT
Track: 3D Cities and Campuses
Authors: Trevor Harris, Andrew Kaufman
Linking City Engine, LumenRT, and ArcGIS provides a valuable 3D modeling and display environment to examine the effect of differing natural and anthropogenic lighting conditions. Integrating light into 3D GIS within an immersive geovirtual environment considerably enhances concepts of mapping in GIS and is especially valuable in many geographical applications including geodesign, mitigating poorly lit areas, and exploring complex issues of space and place in human activity and behavior.
