The Height is Right

3D TERRAIN MODELING FOR ARCHITECTS

The latest new technology to be launched by iCreate is helping architects and their clients understand the lay of the land, without the need for expensive topographical surveys. A new service offers accurate and reliable terrain modeling to help show new developments in the context of their proposed location - a flexible solution that provides architects with access not just to accurate height data but also 3D modeling expertise to make best use of that data.

Liam Tandy, head of Research & Development at iCreate, explains the solution: “Height data is readily available, but getting it into a usable format is the challenge. It's also a matter of fixing the glitches, as well as merging terrain data, surface data and aerial photography into a meaningful model."

iCreate can now provide accurate terrain models in a variety of 3D formats, which architects can use in their own 3D software to inform the design process. Alternatively, we can use the terrain models in our software, to provide static visualisations or interactive 3D models for submission to the Planners and other key decision makers.
