GEOWorld;May2012, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p14
The article offers information on 2.5-dimensional (2.5-D) data, including its capabilities, uses and advantages over other dimensional technologies. It states that the 2.5-D applications such as the Google Street View, Bing Streetside and Pictometry's oblique photography allow users to explore beyond the common X and Y environment constraints. It discusses the use of 2.5-D application in the development of the city model in Vancouver, British Columbia.
