4D Aerial Imaging: Using Time as a Relevant Dimension in Planning & Design

Start Date: On Demand

Start Time: Register now to view

Duration:60 minutes


Innovation in aerial mapping gives architects, designers, and engineers instant access to different forms of location content for use in CAD, BIM and GIS. Classic 2D orthomosaics have long been used for site location analysis, planning, and design. Recent advances in aerial imaging also provide high-res oblique aerial imagery, 3D, digital surface models, point clouds and textured mesh. When combined with the added dimension of "time", practical uses for 2D and 3D aerial imagery take a quantum leap.

4 Learnings Objectives:

  • Attendees will understand the different forms of location content and how to apply each one.
  • Attendees will understand how 3D imagery and DSM can be used inside Autodesk products to enhance planning, architecture, construction and engineering projects
  • Attendees will learn how the dimension of time enhances imagery analysis.
  • Attendees will see real case studies from one of the leading infrastructure solutions firms, HNTB.
