A journal article on the application of 3DGIS was recently published by Wenjiang Chen, Hongbo Su, Yong Yan and Zhaoji Hu on

Physics and Chemistry of the Earth, Parts A/B/C

Highlights of the Article:

• A 3D reconstruction method of accidents triggered by urban major hazard installations is proposed.
• The methods of analyzing the real-time risk and evaluating the accident consequences are established.
• A 3DGIS-based tool is developed to provide decision support for urban major hazard installation management.
• 3D visualizations of accidents, including occurrence, dynamic effects and consequences, are achieved.
