English abstract:
Three-dimensional (3D) geoinformation has been the subject within geoinformation (GIS) community and other related professionals since early 90īs. Recently the subject is getting more attention when users demand better information of the phenomena and of the surrounding objects. A lot of efforts and time have been invested for this kind of 3D geoinformation solution but operationally such system is still hardly available in mass market.
For this reason the Department of Geoinformatics, Faculty of Geoinformation Science and Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia took the initiative to organize the first International Workshop on 3D Geoinformation held in South East Asia, held on 7-8 August, 2006, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The workshop has covered fundamental aspects of 3D geoinformation as well as 3D data collection (LIDAR and other means), 3D spatial data modelling, 3D databases, 3D spatial analysis, 3D visualization, and some applications in 3D geoinformation.
This workshop has gathered researchers, system developers, practitioners, and end users from 21 countries, coming from 5 different continents. They have the great opportunity to discuss new research development, ideas, theories, and possible applications in this very specialized but fast emerging field.
This event has been supported by several other universities amongst which TU Delft, The Netherlands and University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart, Germany; government agencies such as Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM); professional unions such as ISPRS (International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) and Land Surveyors Board of Peninsular Malaysia (LJT); and the international software vendor like Autodesk. Their commitment and support gives us strength and surely motivates all of us in this very specialized subject for better solutions and services.
