Technical Directive and
Slovak Telecom, a.s.
This project was to establish rules and implement tools to work with structured graphical
data about telecommunications networks.
The main aim was to prepare a clear, structured base of graphical data for easy handling
within a technical documentation information system.
The second phase of the project was
quickly finished. After another three
months of training, the tools were implemented for regular use within Slovak
Telecom. The standard format of data now
used will make it easy to handle in any
future corporate solution, and is currently
helping the company identify external
suppliers who are capable of providing
data in the required format.
After about four months, the team had chosen the new structure of the graphical data
and issued a standard for network documentation within Slovak Telecom. Then, the project advanced to creating checking tools
based on MicroStation and Bentley Redline.
The new tools are used to check whether
graphical data received from external suppliers is in the requested new format.
With a total cost of
¤ 35,000, this project has
given Slovak Telecom a
very high return on its
for Accurate 3D Digital
Spatial Data Production
Recently, the need for 3D topography maps
has become wide-ranging.
Asia Air Survey Co., Ltd
Traditionally, 2D maps represented 3D information such as the undulating landscape
with numerical notations and contour lines.
Asia Air Survey has developed labor-saving
methods for accurately creating 3D mapping
data and modifying existing data. These methods replace time-consuming and inaccurate
visual creation and modification of 3D data.
The company has developed systems for 3D
survey and drawing production using high-resolution aerial photograph image data. The
method is to display 3D images by applying
photographic survey technology and editing
existing 3D spatial data. Land-form digital
feature data in 3D space can be recognized
properly in space and can be created and
edited appropriately. Existing 2D information
can be created and edited the same way by
adding 3D information to it.
Logical certification of created data, as well as
automatic modification and edit capabilities
related to the logical results, are needed to
preserve the quality and accuracy of the
high-accuracy 3D spatial data. Asia Air Survey
has developed 3D editing capabilities in MDL
applications running on MicroStation to
maintain the high accuracy of GIS land-form
digital feature data and the quality of virtual
reality material data. ;
