September 18, 2009 -- Infoterra Ltd, a leader in the provision of geographic information products and services, has extended its portfolio of end-to-end geospatial products and services through an agreement with Autodesk Inc to resell LandXplorer Studio in the UK.
LandXplorer Studio, a 3D city modelling software suite, will offer Infoterra customers in local government, engineering and infrastructure network planning a powerful tool to create, analyse and visualise projects using accurate geospatial data.
LandXplorer Studio enables the user to visualise geospatial data in both 2D and 3D, supporting high-resolution terrain textures, large-scale 3D city models, high quality printing, terrain analysis and animation. It also supports, in addition to GIS and 3D formats, CityGML, the future OGC standard for exchanging city model data.
"LandXplorer is a powerful tool for all planners. By viewing real-world scenarios they can gain a better understanding of the impact on our environment so supporting design and planning decisions," commented Tracey Stone, Emerging Industries Sales Manager- Northern Europe at Autodesk Inc.
"The level of detail and the volume of geospatial data acquired and provided by Infoterra continues to increase, so it is important to recognise that tools are required to make the best use of this geo-information. This agreement with Autodesk furthers our commitment to the generation and support of 3D geo-data product and services for the UK market," said Phil Cooper, Head of Geospatial Software Unit, Infoterra Ltd.
