Model related

What is Geo reference model (GRM)?
Geo reference model (GRM) is a 3D model of an existing or under construction building developed and placed in its geographical location. It will have same shape, size and exteriors.

Will the models will have exteriors and interiors?
The model which is placed on the Google earth will have exteriors. It is shell model of the buildings.

Is it possible to build Interiors also?
Yes it is always possible to build the interiors and even walkthrough of your interiors. GRM is an application aimed at exteriors 

What are the details to be provided for developing a 3D model?
Photographs: We need photographs of front, side and back. Please provide us clear photographs with high resolution so that we can make out the details. This will help us to build a better model. Provide as many photographs as possible, with various angles, elevation and details.

Plans: If you have building and elevation plan copies you can send us This helps us to build a perfect model.

What about the file size?
Latest techniques and tools will be used to keep the file size very small.  UV animation has mastered these techniques and tools as we are building many models for Google Earth.

What will be the file size ?
A model developed for placing on Google earth will have very small file size. This varies on the exteriors of the building. Normally it won’t exceed five MB

What is the file format will I get?
You will get two file formats.

  • File with .SKP extension.  This is the source file.
  • File with KMZ extension. This is the file uploaded on Google Earth. This file will be generated after uploading the model to Google earth.

Can I get a complete detailed model?
Yes it is possible to develop a detailed model. But more details we add to model the file size will become heavier. This will have problems in uploading and down loading. Therefore we develop GRM 3D models with the required details only.  Detailed model can be developed and may be used for internal purpose. Models developed to place on Google earth will have the required details only.

Where this model will be placed and stored?
Model will be stored in 3D ware house of Google Earth. Once when we are working on earth model data will be taken from 3D warehouse. When you click download option it will be loaded to the actual location of the earth.

Can I get the models of ongoing projects?
Yes. Models of ongoing projects can be developed and placed on Google earth. We need the drawing and elevation reference to develop model.

What is the time frame required for developing model?
Once all the details are provided with a PO we need about 5 working days to develop the model and send it you for approval. Once it is done it will be placed on the Google Earth.

Can I l store this model in my website?
Yes you can store the model in your web site. Or you can create a link to the 3D warehouse where the models will be stored by Google.

Can I see the model from any computer?
Yes if you have internet connection and Google earth installed. (It is free). Latest computers installed in last 4 years of time can run this application.

How is this model helpful to a business?
This is a very important tool for business in various ways.
