This 1-day course introduces you to the cutting edge, military-grade 3D visualisation and analysis platform known as Skyline TerraExplorer. You will quickly gain the ability to visualise your 3D vector and Terrain Raster data in on a 3D globe environment, learn how to perform analysis on 3D terrain such as viewshed modelling, Terrain Profiles, Slope analysis or perform 3D measurements for surface areas and heights. You will learn how to take full advantage of spatial data analysis within a 3D environment and visualise your existing data in a brand new… and fun way!

This course has been specifically designed for:
GIS Analysts, Data Creators, Map Creators, GIS Team Leaders and Project Managers.

Course outcome

At the completion of this course, you should be able to confidently put together a 3D globe complete with vector and raster layers and be able to perform a range of 3D analysis operations on that data as well as display and symbolise that data in a state-of-the-art 3D mapping environment.


Some experience working with spatial data and basic windows skills would be helpful but not necessary.
