For some time now, engineers, analysts and scientists have been discussing that ever-frustrating topic of how best to manage and store the vast amount of information we now generate. The discussion around document management certainly isn’t a new one on anyone’s agenda however there are some very interesting solutions coming to the fore that promise to make it all much […]
Put simply, if you want to create a 3D PDF in Adobe’s Acrobat® X or XI Pro, you’ll need a PRC file (or U3D file) to do it. Acrobat can load and embed a PRC file into a PDF page. Once embedded, the 3D PDF can be viewed using the free Adobe Reader. The PRC file contains the actual 3D geometry.
So what is a PRC file?
It’s an exciting week to be involved in the development of PDF standards, particularly the derivative versions specific to engineering and geospatial of which we have a real interest.
We’re in New York, USA at the International ISO committee meeting, and honoured to be in the unique position of representing the UK in these standards through our participation with the BSI […]
With over 90 resident experts from the global geospatial community and 550 professionals from across Europe, the November 2013 LiDAR event in Amsterdam was an interesting one. From seminars and workshops to exchange forums and over 70 exhibitors, it was exciting to learn more about how large scale data is being transformed into 3D visuals.
There was clearly a move towards […]
Our own Dan O’Connor is looking forward to attending the big European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) and SPAR Europe Conference in Amsterdam next week 11-13 November 2013.
Aimed at 3D imaging professionals including architects, builders, and engineers, from around the world, we’re keen to hear how technology is moving forward in the areas of GIS, mapping, infrastructure and urban modeling.
We’ll be […]
