What is 3D Mapping and Modeling?
Three-dimensional (3D) mapping refers to a computer-generated, highly realistic virtual representation of an area and objects. It comprises a photogrammetry technique that offers greater efficiency in the horizontal direction and laser scanning for precision in the vertical direction. It utilizes objects as a surface as compared to screens and creates an interactive display. It assists in eliminating inconsistencies and enhancing the accuracy of mapping products. On the other hand, three-dimensional (3D) modeling refers to the process of creating a mathematical representation of a 3D object or shape through software. It is widely utilized for visualizing and rendering graphic designs for a specific purpose. It aids in improving drawing efficiency and accuracy and allows designers to physically see an object from all perspectives. It is also beneficial during the design phase and can potentially avoid costly construction problems. As a result, 3D mapping and modeling are widely employed in the construction, transportation, automobile, entertainment, and healthcare industries across the globe.
The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has caused severe problems for various industries and imposed unprecedented challenges on numerous countries. Production activities were slowed down due to the imposition of lockdowns and shutdowns all over the world. However, the lockdown has shown a positive impact on the growth of the 3D modeling and mapping market in the healthcare industry. The introduction of graphical information system (GIS) technology has offered an enhanced descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive stage of combating COVID-19. In addition to this, a 3D model of the surface of the coronavirus has been developed by a company and is available free for scientists for additional research and treatments. Apart from this, governing agencies of numerous countries encouraged the adoption of 3D mapping and modeling in research facilities, which has positively influenced the market during the Covid-19 pandemic.
