Geospatial and  photogrammetry: When the mapping world and the gaming world collide

The gaming and the mapping world might look like two very distinct industries but when we give a closer look, we can discern some similarities. Both industries are now more than ever benefiting from each other’s unique features. In one hand, interactive 3D GIS are now using improved graphics, atmospheric and particles effects to visualise real-world data as well as interactive navigation capabilities similar to a video game. In the other hand, maps are the core component of many video games and can be based on either fantasy or real-world information derived from geospatial data. A growing number of games developers have also started to use 3D assets generated using 3D photogrammetry techniques. Read more
