Visualizing Alternative Transportation Designs
汇报人：Dr. Brent Chamberlain
讲座内容：Designing and engineering highways is a complex process. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can support engineers in creating plans, estimating costs and evaluating impacts. GIS can be extended to develop 3D visualization models of highway systems. To demonstrate different highway design techniques you will learn how to quickly show design alternatives as 3D realistic models.
