Once a three dimensional model of a city has been created, there are opportunities for putting this material to wider use.
You can even start generating revenue. In the future the “virtual world” will be as popular as the real world attracting as many human hours as your local high-street.
Your developers and businesses will want to take up the opportunities your model will create. Online advertising is already one of the fastest growing businesses in the world. Your city and town model should be a part of this revolution.
In addition to this your city’s 3D virtual model can become a key element in your marketing and promotional arsenal: it can be adapted, for example, to:
- place the model in a virtual world such as Google Earth or Second Life
- provide recognisable ‘product placement’ of the city in other applications - such as videos games or commercial advertising.
These opportunities can only grow over time as new technologies and applications evolve: your 3D City Model is likely to prove to be an increasingly valuable asset.
