The Royal wedding in 3D
Astrium, Europe’s leading space company, proposes a 3D flythrough of the Royal Wedding route that will be taken by Prince William and Catherine Middleton on the 29th April. 2011 The 3D flythrough will enable Royal Wedding fans of to experience the couple’s journey from St James’s Palace to Westminster Abbey. It also shows the route they will take back to Buckingham Palace after the wedding ceremony.
Astrium has mapped out the route to showcase the awesome power of Skape
, a 3D mapping service from its GEO-Information Services
division, which combines high resolution 3D textured city models with 2D mapping and terrain data – a technological first.
Through Skape, urban planners can now rapidly develop highly detailed architectural models, saving on both time and costs. New buildings can be imported into a city and viewed in context with their surroundings, whilst existing buildings can be instantly removed and replaced. The high level of accuracy means that varying building textures, street furniture, light and sun shadowing at different times of the day, and unlimited vantage points can all be observed from anywhere in this online environment.
