Issue No. 04 - July/August (2002 vol. 22)
<p>In this article, we discuss the nature of the acquired data and how we're beginning to meet these challenges and produce visually navigable models. We've developed 3D City, a semiautomated system that supports human intervention at key points to meet the challenge of constructing complete and extended urban models from several data sources. We've already built virtual environments (VEs) for urban planning and emergency response using 3D City.</p>
