MapsByAir 3D helps you create a realistic perspective view or full motion video of your project area using digital maps and aerial photos. Optionally, you can combine the maps and photos with your AutoCAD or plan drawings of buildings or other structures. These 3D views can display realistic looking buildings, trees, cars, clouds, etc, to produce a life-like image for you. You and your stakeholders will be better able to visualize your project and will appreciate how these 3D images add value to the decision-making process.If you need us to supply high detail terrain information in your visualization, we have one of the most powerful, versatile laser imaging systems available in the industry. Called LiDAR, or Light Detection And Ranging, its technology provides centimetre accuracy for mapping the terrain. LiDAR derived DEMs are very popular for railway and pipeline corridor design, utility corridor design / vegetation encroachment / electrical line (catenary) sag, and highway design.
You can use MapsByAir 3D for example, if you want to:
demonstrate how a new building will affect surrounding views,
depict the appearance of a proposed bridge from either side of a lake or river,
plan lines of site along golf course fairways, or
showcase your fishing lodge with an impressive aerial flythrough,
MapsByAir 3D can create the reality you need.

Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project
Date: Jan 2006
Proposed Sea to Sky Highway improvements
in the HorseShoe Bay area. Utilizing 3D highway
interchanges, cuts/fills, and computer generated
ecosystems. Viewers are given a two minute drivethrough
travelling northbound on the new highway.
Proposed bridge with high resolution airphoto draped over a digital elevation model. The proposed bridge, trees, and road alignments were created from 3D AutoCAD drawings and created just for this virtual movie. Render time (computer "crunch time") took almost 300 hours to compose this movie.
