Bluesky Data Used to Model Major Infrastructure Projects

Jun 23, 2015 -- Aerial photography and computer generated models of buildings and trees from Bluesky are helping specialist graphics company 3D Web Technologies (3DW) create interactive 3D visualisations. The highly detailed models have been used to support planning applications and consultations for some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects. By improving communication and enhancing understanding of the impact of projects such as wind and solar farms, power lines and power stations, as well as housing and regeneration projects.

“By using Bluesky’s high resolution aerial photography, National Tree Map data, 3D Building Models as well as Ordnance Survey map data we can efficiently create models of a proposed development,” commented Kangjie Zhao, Development Director at 3DW. “The Bluesky data helps us to better represent the real world environment or site to its true likeness, which in turns helps our clients communicate their plans more effectively and efficiently.”

3DW uses the Bluesky data within their proprietary 3D modelling software. Terrain models are used to generate a 3D mesh of the earth’s surface onto which the Bluesky aerial images and Ordnance Survey map layers are overlaid. 3DW has also developed a specialist tool that allows Bluesky’s unique National Tree Map data and 3D Building Models to be read directly into the 3D model.

“We have always received a professional service from Bluesky and their staffs are helpful and knowledgeable,” continued Zhao, “in addition Bluesky offers unique products and competitive prices which suit our, and our clients, specific and often demanding requirements.”

3DW are specialist developers of interactive 3D visualisations. For almost twenty years the company has supported leading energy companies, such as National Grid, EDF Energy, Vattenfall and DONG Energy. 3DW provide innovative applications which have effectively enhanced the design, planning and consultation activities associated with major energy infrastructure projects.
