About this book

The book will focus on comparing several types of 3D models (and this is unique). Due to the rapid developments in sensor techniques more and more 3D data becomes available. Effective algorithms for (semi) automatic object reconstruction are required. Integration of existing 2D objects with height data is a non-trivial process and needs further research. The resulting 3D models can be maintained in several types of 3D models: TEN (Tetrahedral Network), Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) models, Regular Polytopes, TIN Boundary representation and 3D volume quad edge structure, layered/topology models, voxel based models, 3D models used in urban planning/polyhedrons, and n-dimensional models including time. 3D analysis and 3D simulation techniques explore and extend the possibilities in spatial applications.

From the reviews: "Clearly written and definitively presented, the individual papers represent a valuable collection of information on the current state-of-the-art research in the field of 3D geoinformation. Papers are well documented with references. ! Overall, a significant, highly interesting, and - to repeat - timely volume. ! There is much to commend in this book and I would suggest that all libraries of scientists and researchers in GIS, photogrammetry and remote sensing acquire and stock at least one copy." (Current Engineering Practice, 2008)
