Quality, not quantity
We have made quality our habit. It’s not something that we just strive for – we live by this principle every day.
While most of the things about the creative process will be forgotten, the excellence of our products and services will be remembered.
3D mapping, another wonder of modern technology, is a new machine vision technology in the field of cartography. While we are already familiar with 2D maps and 3D vision, it is not hard to imagine how a 3D map looks like? Don’t let the curvature of Earth hinder your view and zoom in close to your location using 3D mapping.3D mapping means profiling of objects in three dimensions to map the objects in real-world. There are several ways for a 3D profiling of an area or object, such as using a pair of a stereo camera. Another method is to measure the depth of an object or feature from focus. You can also create a 3D effect by detecting the light field by plenoptic methods or using active 3D imaging techniques.
Advantage of 3D mapping over 2D technologyOne of the best benefits of 3D mapping is that it provides the latest technical methods for visualisation and gathering information. Knowledge visualisation and science mapping become easier when a 3D map is available for the object/area under study.A 3D map provides a realistic view of a location that can be utilised by local authorities and planners. For the construction sector, a 3D map is as useful as a blueprint is. It is very easy to visualise floor plans on a 3D map and identify possible obstructions which may occur during construction.When you have a 3D map in front of you, you enter a world of limitless imagination where you can experiment with many visual effects virtually before the final output. From determining the position of aircraft to making your event special with projection mapping, 3D mapping is working as a magical eye.
What is 3D modelling?Let’s start with a 3D modelling definition. 3D modelling is the process of creating three-dimensional representations of an object or a surface. 3D models are made within computer-based 3D modelling software, which we’ll explore a little later. During the 3D modelling process, you can determine an object’s size, shape, and texture. The process works with points, lines, and polygons to create the 3D shapes within the software. How does 3D modelling work? A 3D model is essentially made up of vertices, which come together to form a mesh and act as the core of the 3D model. Each point on the model can be manipulated to change the shape. By using coordinate data, the software identifies the location of each vertical and horizontal point, all relative to a reference point. The most common way to begin making a 3D model is to start with a basic shape – a cube, box, sphere, or whatever you think is best suited. From your starter shape, you can start moulding and refining it into what you desire. What is 3D modelling used for? Many industries utilise 3D modelling for a range of projects; there are likely loads of 3D modelled items we use without even realising its involvement. With 3D modelling, the opportunities are endless. It’s a truly versatile medium that can be used for an array of different areas. Let’s explore some common uses of 3D modelling: Game developmentPerhaps the most commonly known use for 3D modelling is game development. 3D models are used to create characters, settings, props, and entire worlds within video games. The key to any good game is immersion, and 3D modelling is a great way to build immersive experiences.3D modelling is particularly important within the world of virtual reality gaming, which is an extremely exciting sector. Virtual reality games fully immerse you in the game experience, creating entire three-dimensional worlds to dive into.
A 3D virtual tour represents an interactive 3D model of a property. 3D scans are widely used in real estate and hospitality as a way of providing potential customers with an online "walk-through" of the space from any location.It's perhaps best described as "reality capture," as that's precisely what takes place, and the process brings any built environment directly to anyone, from anywhere, on any device. Viewers can navigate the 3D space simply by clicking or tapping their screen; they can look up or down, as well as side to side, just as they would in real life. The transition from one point to the next within a tour is seamless. There are no visual distortions in a true 3D tour.
This is typically done via a specialized camera equipped with multiple lenses and infared that can sense, measure, and capture depth. However, in utilizing the spatial context of spaces already captured from around the world, Matterport has trained its AI-powered tour software to add depth to images captured with simple 360 cameras and in the near future, smartphones. The resolution and features vary depending on your camera but the experience remains. In other words, Matterport can create true 3D from 360. Matterport is a pioneer and the leader in 3D tour technology.
