The V1 Video Team made a site visit to Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park to capture video interviews and witness an ambitious drone-based reality-capture exercise to photograph and model the mountain park. The visualization team from engineering firm Kimley-Horn captured the area for the City and County of Denver, which owns and maintains the park. Autodesk and its partner 3D Robotics were on hand to demo their collaboration on SiteScan, which creates an automated workflow from drone capture to use within Autodesk’s modeling software. The mission had many purposes, including historical archiving of the park, modeling stormwater erosion, tracking trail maintenance, and building acoustics and lighting models for the amphitheater.
This Asia Pacific-themed GeoSpatial Stream broadcast covers the recent launch of DIWATA-1, The Philippines' first microsatellite; Australia's move toward more-accurate GNSS navigation at its airports; Apple opening a technical and support center in Hyderabad, India, for its Maps and navigation services; industry news from NTT Data, LizardTech, BJ Open Tide BoGan, Ozius Spatial and U-blox; a video clip from JAXA (in Japanese) about weather monitoring; and more.
The V1 Video team interviewed Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems, at the 2016 SPAR 3D Expo and Conference, held April 11-14 in The Woodlands, Texas. In Part I, he provides his insight into reality modeling, the differences between a reality mesh and a point cloud, new tools for improved engineering and the future of 3D technology.
