We have built a very strong national and international reputation as a leading practitioner of these services. We are known and trusted by government departments at all levels as well as major private sector corporations across a range of industries.
Our award-winning 3D modeling service provides an end-to-end solution from flight planning to 3D processing and geo-registration.
We design surveys based on end-user needs. We combine imagery from fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and street-level to build accurate 3D reality mesh models.
Our 3D data gives you access to high-resolution 3D city mesh models that provide context to your projects, help develop and visualize scenarios as well as offer a comprehensive 3D base dataset for change monitoring.
We create models with Level of Detail and any additional geospatial data, 3D objects, etc. for integration into a range of 3rd party rendering software.
We work with clients to understand their requirements and tailor the best solution in terms of application-linked outputs, image resolution, accuracy, size and capture technique. We provide datasets in a range of CAD/GIS-ready 3D formats, packaged for online 3D platforms. We also provide value-added services to extract 3D information, perform 3D change analysis and integrate additional spatial data to the 3D city models.
Level of Detail (LOD) models are representations of buildings at different scalable detail.
We have multiple options for LOD models depending on client needs. The options below are a guide and we can add more details.
We are at the forefront of developing 3D visualizations for a range of projects. Our Research & Development team has been working on how to streamline large scale 3D model ingestion for game engines, which offer the ultimate in real-time model visualizations for the geospatial industry.
Dynamic lighting, realistic weather, and photogrammetry asset libraries make for a rich and diverse staging environment that can change to reflect real-world conditions. An architectural firm can re-create a fully-furnished apartment building and show real-world lighting to prospective buyers who can digitally walk through the property. Housing developments can model an entire neighborhood before it’s built and let people experience the space in virtual reality. Large infrastructure projects can place new structures within a city model and show a bridge or building as it will exist in the real world.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning enable the classification of 3D reality mesh and allow for intuitive management of data that’s grounded in accurate renders of real-world spaces. They simplify the management of Smart Cities where ordinary objects will hold extraordinary abilities.
We start with a high-resolution capture of an urban area. We use a mixture of aerial and ground imagery with photogrammetry as the basis of a realistic 3D mesh model. The next step is “classifying” the data. A limiting factor for mesh modeling in the past has been the lack of context to the images; objects in the 3D reality mesh models need to carry attribute data to maximize utility for city planners and managers. We use a mixture of manual and AI-driven processes to classify objects as buildings, trees, and others. Each classified object can then have databased information applied to it. Interactive 3D GIS solutions allow users to interact with and query the integrated classified 3D data.
