The joint research project „3D-VIS“ offers a unified instrument for planning and coordination of participants, decision makers and companions in urban and suburban planning and re-structuring.
How will a future electricity trail look like in the landscape? Will I be influenced by shadows casted from the new wind power station? How do the newly constructed buildings integrate into the existing city silhouette? All these are question that move citizens when it comes to urban development and landscape construction. With conventional town & country planning and with the zoning & land development plans displayed at the town-hall or the building inspection office, not enough people get knowledge of all the facts and therefore do not participate in the discussions. Conflicts are inevitable.
The partners of 3D-VIS develop a system which offers participants, decision makers and companions of projects focusing on planning and building of public supply networks, urban construction and landscaping a unified instrument for planning, coordination and discussion.
By the unique aggregation of processes and functions into one platform, 3D-VIS can be transferred to all practices in public-space-projects and has therefor a high potential for all construction-focused endeavors.
The harmonization and integration of multifaceted geo data, the analysis and preparation of integrated geo information as well as the visualization and interactive evaluation of the results using innovative media are the core elements of this forward-looking solution.
Connected with a great spectrum of interaction technologies and graphical output devices, from smartphone over image projectors to 3D devices, 3D-VIS is a novel solution to gain different perspectives on complex topical interrelations and support the imagination of the user.
A multi-touch table offers a well-proven platform for discussing alternatives among the team of experts. By using the new generation of 3D web browsers the presentation of 3D models can be accessed by everyone over the internet.
The project is carried out from 1rst April 2013 until 1rst June 2014.
