Effectiveness of 3D Models
A 3D model allows a landscape, an object, or structure to be viewed from any angle or perspective. The model itself can be animated allowing viewers to fly through the scene in a pre-programmed path.
Because measurements of objects and distances within the model are preserved, if the subject-matter of the dispute no longer physically exists--where damages to land have been restored or a damaged structure removed--the parties have the advantage of using the 3D model later in the process to resolve disputes or prove facts. The 3D model also becomes part of the Record of the proceeding making it available at appeal or judicial review.
