This paper presents our research and development effort towards a real-time 3-D situational awareness visualization for emergency response (3D-SAVER) in urban environments. For achieving the 3D-SAVER, key enabling technological components (including GIS image/data processing, 3-D building modeler, interactive visualization, and dynamic scene update) were developed and integrated. The resultant 3D-SAVER prototype is capable of not only automatically collecting and processing image & information… CONTINUE READING
