Advances in 3D Geoinformation Systems
The book covers the international state-of-the-art research in the field of 3D geo-information modeling. It focuses on comparing several types of 3D models. Due to the rapid developments in sensor techniques more and more 3D data becomes available. Effective algorithms for (semi) automatic object reconstruction are required. 3D analysis and 3D simulation techniques explore and extend the possibilities in spatial applications.

From the reviews:
"Clearly written and definitively presented, the individual papers represent a valuable collection of information on the current state-of-the-art research in the field of 3D geoinformation. Papers are well documented with references. ' Overall, a significant, highly interesting, and - to repeat - timely volume. ' There is much to commend in this book and I would suggest that all libraries of scientists and researchers in GIS, photogrammetry and remote sensing acquire and stock at least one copy." (Current Engineering Practice, 2008)
'Collection of papers from the 2007 3D GeoInfo workshop held in Delft Holland, and covers a range of these challenges, collected under the themes of Applications, Acquisition, Modelling, Analysis and Visualisation. The main strength of the collection concerns the data modelling and DBMS implementation issues with 3D GIS. ' this is a good collection of recent research in 3D GIS, particularly for those interested in data models and city modelling. The volume is well presented with a high number of useful black and white figures.' (Duncan Smith, Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy, Vol. 3 (1), 2010)
