Application of Three-Dimension Visualization Technology in Water Supply Pipeline Information System Based on VTK


Article Preview

The underground water supply pipeline information system used currently is short of describing the pipe in three dimensions. Aiming at this point, the 3D underground pipe information system was achieved with the help of three-dimension graphics tool (VTK) in this paper. With the system, users can browse the 3D underground pipes and search interrelated datum, which raises the efficiency and standard of city digitizing management.
