I'm trying to figure out what the best format to serve 3D images inside our company. Specifically georeferenced Tiff's that have been placed in 3d space with Geosoft Montaj. We use ArcMAP extensively but don't want to go the way of the 3D Analyst extension.
We are beginning to store scanned Level Plans and Cross Sections and would like to store them in 3D, but what format? The brass upstairs like using Leapfrog, but from what I can learn, it seems that Leapfrog doesn't like vertically geo-referenecd images. It requires a manual entry of co-ordinates, elevations, and direction. Which isn't exportable afterwards.
I've never used GoCAD before, but our geologists are evaluating it for geological modelling. I've been able to look at it briefly and it's a bit intimidating. Does someone have experience with it and importing 3d images?
So specfically, I'd like to know some people's thoughts who have used these programs for this purpose. Also if there is a good 3d file format to get our data into so that it is as interchangeable as possible. Thanks
