Written as a self-study workbook, 'Introduction to 3D Data' tries to demystifies the sometimes confusing controls and procedures required for 3D modeling using software packages such as ArcGIS 3D Analyst and Google Earth. Going beyond the manual that comes with the software, this profusely illustrated guide explains how to use ESRI´s ArcGIS 3D Analyst to model and analyze three-dimensional geographical surfaces, create 3D data, and produce displays ranging from topographically realistic maps to 3D scenes and spherical earth-like views. The engagingly user-friendly instruction - Walks readers through basic concepts of 3D data, progressing to more advanced techniques such as calculating surface area and volume. Introduces readers to two major software packages - ArcGIS 3D Analyst (including ArcScene and ArcGlobe) and Google Earth. Helps readers apply the theory with real-world applications, and more. 'Introduction to 3D Data' wants turn readers into power users of 3D GIS.
