3D Building Landmark Capturing

3D Building Landmarks
About the Customer

The customer is a leading navigation content company.

Business Challenge

For navigation with GPS functionality to deliver an optimized user experience, the customer sought AABSyS assistance to create 3D models of select landmarks for their incorporation in their navigation applications. AABSyS was supplied with a standard detail 3D building model, light detail 3D building model, 2D icon and alpha icon, and landmark anchor point.


AABSyS provided expertized solutions for the successful fulfillment of the challenge by creating a 3D model of the landmark of interest and performing grid alignment, accurate capture of dimensions, and drafting slanting roofs. The textures of 3D models were derived from real world photography and the model was presented in line with real world scale.

  • Geocoded and real time 3D replica of landmarks assists in navigation applications such as, vehicle navigation systems, city maps in personal mobility devices, digital city guides and mobile applications for city travel.
  • The application of 3D landmark is now not only limited to navigation but has now begin to be used in industries such as urban planning, architecture visualization, real estate management, location marketing, web based visualization solutions, tourism, entertainment (TV, movies, games), as well as 3D simulators (flight simulators, driving simulators.)
