One of the most powerful and impressive capabilities of a GIS is its ability to model in 3D. In conducting a visual impact assessment 3D Analysis gives valuable visual feedback for the possible impacts of proposed developments.

GIS layers applied in 3D Analysis can be used to create a physical 3D terrain model by printing them on a 3D printer. The printer works by laying down alternate layers of powder and glue. The glue is only added where there is a xyz and colour value. This is repeated many times until the surface terrain or model is complete.
