Landform wirelines (or wireframes) are constructed from LIDAR, Next MAP 5m DTM or OS Terrain 5 height data to produce geometric grids or break lines.
Wirelines together with 3D models can be overlaid over photographs to give a highly accurate illustration of the scale and massing of a development, a technique known as 'photo-model’ overlays.
The use of LIDAR DSM data in the model together with 3D points derived by laser rangefinders ensures that the visualisations are highly accurate.
Outputs can be planar or cylindrical projection, allowing a full 360 degree view which can be printed or viewed interactively.
Wireline and rendered photomontages can be created from supplied 3D or 2D data. Models are geo-referenced and cameras positioned in real world space. Renders can be produced in both planar and cylindrical projection. Target points are positioned in the model to give a highly accurate method of locating the model in a photograph. The resultant models can be animated to illustrate dynamic movement and fly-throughs.
