Interview: Esri Places 3D and Visualization Into 'The Science of Where'

image chris andrewsVisualization is only one aspect of 3D. At Esri, the term visualization means something different than what it means in terms of engineering. Usually we refer to visualization as making a map. But 3D exposes GIS vendors to new users, such as real estate, architecture or infrastructure customers, who expect higher resolution representation of realistic visuals and visual effects expressed in cartographic expression in 3D. 3D Visualization World Magazine interviewed Chris Andrews, Product Manager for 3D across the Esri ArcGIS platform to learn more about visualization and 3D at that company.
