Publisher Comments:

Render three-dimensional data and maps with ease.

Written as a self-study workbook, Introduction to 3D Data demystifies the sometimes confusing controls and procedures required for 3D modeling using software packages such as ArcGIS 3D Analyst and Google Earth. 

Going beyond the manual that comes with the software, this profusely illustrated guide explains how to use ESRI’s ArcGIS 3D Analyst to model and analyze three-dimensional geographical surfaces, create 3D data, and produce displays ranging from topographically realistic maps to 3D scenes and spherical earth-like views.   The engagingly user-friendly instruction:

• Walks you through basic concepts of 3D data, progressing to more advanced techniques such as calculating surface area and volume

• Introduces you to two major software packages: ArcGIS 3D Analyst (including ArcScene and ArcGlobe) and Google Earth

• Reinforces your understanding through in-depth discussions with over thirty hands-on exercises and tutorial datasets on the support website at www.wiley/college/kennedy

• Helps you apply the theory with real-world applications

Whether you’re a student or professional in geology, landscape architecture, transportation system planning, hydrology, or a related field, Introduction to 3D Data   will quickly turn you into a power user of 3D GIS.

Written as a user-friendly, self-study workbook, Introduction to 3D Data demystifies the sometimes confusing controls and procedures required to render data in three dimensions using software packages such as ArcGIS 3D Analyst, ArcGlobe and Google Earth. Going beyond the manual that comes with the software, this book walks the reader through basic concepts (what is 3D data), progressing to the more advanced (calculating surface area and volume). Illustrated with over 200 screenshots and explanatory line-drawings, the book provides a simple, self-paced introduction to using GIS in three dimensions.
