3D Mapping with GeoCanvas
This week, San Francisco-based urban development software company Synthicity released a public version of GeoCanvas, its 3D geospatial visualization tool. The tool, which was initially developed as an in-house solution for visualizing large urban data sets, will now be available for real estate analysis, urban planning, geography and other applications. Synthicity hopes the tool will be useful for beginners and experts alike; although users can create visualizations using the tool by itself, they can also integrate more advanced libraries, such as Python-based scientific computing resource SciPy, into their workflows. The company has also released a set of video tutorials to get users up to speed with the tool’s functions.
