MP: INT3D - Intuitive interpretation and mapping in digital 3D environments

Alternative title: MP: INT3D - Intuitiv tolkning og kartlegging i digitale 3D-miljøer

Awarded: NOK 0.48 mill.

In many areas of our society, 3D modelling of the natural and built environment is increasingly important. Visualisation of these models on a computer allows us to better plan, understand and communicate spatial relationships. However, current software does not make it easy for users to map and interpret features in 3D. This project aims to demonstrate innovative software tools for illustrative mapping on 3D models. The core application area is for geologists and geoscientists, who struggle to fully exploit the wealth of 3D model data available today. These professionals need to be able to effectively digitise and highlight features of geological interest, landslide or coastal erosion risk areas and more. The project builds on our LIME software for visualisation and presentation of 3D geoscience, creating a prototype interpretation module used to showcase results to key stakeholders in the geoscience and energy industry. The outcomes guide strategy and sustainable business model development to reach new users in the geoscience sector and beyond.
