Rolta Wins Another Project for Creating a 3D City Model

MUMBAI, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Rolta today announced that it has been awarded a prestigious 3D City Modeling contract valued at $4M by a major Middle-Eastern country.

Rolta is an early mover in developing, adopting and mastering the technologies required to address this emerging trend of using 3D City Models for planning and e-governance.  The Company first won a project for establishing a large 3D map for Dubai.  This was followed by multi-million dollar add-on awards from Dubai, a contract from the Sultanate of Oman, and the path-breaking $25M project recently awarded by Abu Dhabi.  With these significant wins, Rolta has established an enviable track-record for creating 3D City Models, and has developed a library of its own sophisticated software tools, work-flows and specialized skills.  

It is evident that use of 3D City Models for town planning, infrastructure development, environmental management, homeland security and emergency response is the new trend and is gaining rapid acceptance.  This project will reinforce the potential of this technology to other cities who are readying their own plans to embark on similar initiatives, thereby offering opportunities worth hundreds of millions of dollars for companies like Rolta.

This project entails the creation of a 3D City model over a large urban area of 3,000 sq. km.  Modeling a city in 3D involves deployment of very sophisticated technologies, such as aerial oblique imaging, photogrammetric mapping, street-view imaging, GPS surveys, laser-scanning, and integration of numerous disparate data sources into a special-purpose data-model that lends itself to spatial analysis.  Integrated spatial and non-spatial data will be accessed via the Web through Rolta OnPoint™ by diverse users based on security access privileges of each.  Rolta will use a number of software suites from its large repository of intellectual property to perform specialized tasks for such modeling, besides also leveraging 'The Street Factory' software from 'Airbus, Defense & Space' for certain tasks.

This award recognizes Rolta's unique ability to provide domain expertise and deliver sophisticated technology solutions that fundamentally change how agencies and governments fulfill their missions.  This project is a natural evolution and extension of Rolta Geospatial Fusion[TM] platform strategy.  Geospatial Fusion is an enterprise-level application framework that enables integration of disparate sources of geospatial and non-spatial data, and interfaces readily with third party application software to create a comprehensive solution tailored to suit the customer's specific needs.  

Mr. K.K. Singh, Chairman and CEO of Rolta said, "We are very pleased to have been selected for yet another 3D City Modeling project.  Our customer is among the early adopters of the new paradigm for effective e-governance and delivery of citizen services. At Rolta, we are excited to have the technology and the expertise to help customers participate in '3D Digital Globe' initiatives."
