Written as a user-friendly, self-study workbook, Introduction to 3D Data demystifies the sometimes confusing controls and procedures required to render data in three dimensions using software packages such as ArcGIS 3D Analyst, ArcGlobe and Google Earth. Going beyond the manual that comes with the software, this book walks the reader through basic concepts (what is 3D data), progressing to the more advanced (calculating surface area and volume). Illustrated with over 200 screenshots and explanatory line-drawings, the book provides a simple, self-paced introduction to using GIS in three dimensions.
