We congratulate Arne Schilling for defending his PhD!

Last friday our former team member Arne Schilling successfully defended his PhD! Congratulations for that! The topic was about “3D Spatial Data Infrastructures for Web-Based Visualization” and included his work on developing SDIs for 3D landscape and city models evaluating and advancing OGC proposal for 3D visualization like the Web 3D Service (W3DS) and integrating it with further OGC web services for building web-based 3D GIS applications. His work in projects like “GDI-3D” also included developing several new algorithms for processing 3D terrain and landscape models. Results can be experienced by downloading the W3DS client XNavigator that allows to visualize e.g. Heidelberg-3D, Sutren-3D or OSM-3D.
