Abstract
This paper introduces a new digital and in-field mobile solution for landscape visual impact analysis (VIA) with in-field mobile visualisation using GIality (the convergence of 3D models, sensors including location and spatial data) to provide new and engaging, contextual and personal access to information. By taking planning data for spatial analysis off the map and into intuitive app-based mobile systems we will discuss how traditional plan-based representation is not always the best communication tool. Maps may remain a tool for experts and professionals but the future of GI representation is no longer limited by physical media. For public understanding – and the democtatisation of data –we must understand and embrace new technology trends and opportunities in consumer devices. We will explain how, using modern technology drivers including devices such as mobile phones and tablet computers, combined with geospatial positioning, spatial data and services, GIality can bring a new dimension democratisation and community engagement with planning & renewables data. Especially related to planning and renewable energy development, visual impact is one of the primary aspects in the consideration of acceptance under local and national guidance. This is most reported where the impact of wind turbines on the landscape has split political, environmental and consumer opinion. However the current mechanisms and procedures for visual impact assessment (VIA) are based on traditional printed off-site analysis which limits their context, scope and use. A new approach will be demonstrated with a case study in Scotland. The trends for mobile work and play, combined with integrated sensors and social coordination provide the availability and accessibility of tools for both professionals and citizens to democratise and personalise data. The augmentation of as-planned models and geospatial data with device location, attitude and orientation allows individual places of residence, work and play to be equally fairly, rigorously and unambiguously assessed for visual impact and create cost-effective solutions.

the and free as an essential cannot 3 we start paper hosting or service or support or maintenance and say when we talk about free should not just think of monetary free not just think freedom of licenses free as in France and patches and so the so this structure in part of the whole project lifestyle helps us help the phones
down OK so said actually example what you doing Scott Serre in about 2 thousand 6 7 the Scottish government decided they needed to keep all the local authorities of about and create some standardized ways to force them to provide greater levels of access to to geospatial information finding information and the device for work-streams to enable and they are called online applications the hills online planning information online local the plant that essentially they are sent there were central government funded place to provide greater access to information don't can work for the time when the 1st contract with a marriage with another to to win the next to in the next thing and part the the key strength was winning was it was built on free and open source software think so the cut that a success story no wider than know in the UK realizes how big with its we got this free open-source software in at least and the office that counts monarch least 214 local authorities in England the wells delivering planning information services every day that so it's about to 50 cent penetration that a product announcements of massive lost opportunity but it's out there it's being used by Open Source is working in the such the project we used
is that on map guide it's not just the amounts snow no and we picked it because of the following reasons is mature Timonen it's still it's a Solid-State agnostic that means that when we went and talk to 214 planning authorities they don't care where they've got shape files of pace so Oracle sequel server spatial what did you pay at the same solution works for all those partners down means we can do call the projections for the trap on who we are dealing with it means that got a really easy deployment OK it just works pressed next next next most local authorities most set local government in the UK still based on Windows environment it makes it easy for them development languages and building a business we can build a on jalopies don't nets even their job script is this search that
was a quick example of how you can build a wall with your business on the source of about how we use map guide to lower the costs for entry to increase our the range of which we could of the range of the range of partners that we could deliver the same solution to without having to reinvent the wheel every time it's not the barriers to entry for letting the software and deploying software meant that it was a good solution on its success story big stick in the box modem last year's false such such that that exists that's place what we're doing now is starting to look at exploiting open data as well as a sense software to build a new business case such if we go back to what this digital destruction stuff says and when we look at where the emerging technology cycles of and we look all these great great ways to drive digital business we start to do this thing called adjacency means that you're on business look at what similar to what you get in an expanding that's easier to find wade into other business that is to invent new problems to solve Kay observed technology trends Allah trends and businesses this communication part such that's changing the way we communicate data based on the availability going from the trying to move away from the top down plant-based Mac-based this kind of old school could world GIS we let maps in 2 different ways of communicating information and the problem that we try solve now with Open Data is this this problem of visual impact assessment of visual impact analysis which is passed environmental impact assessments I basically says if I stick grated wind turbine for a new building development you shared a house Conservatory whatever in the landscape how's that going to change the visual perception to me can't that's about a problem statement what's what what does development did has that by visual visual sense DEC and jazz people been doing
this the ages we do said TVs in cross-section analysis and totem ontologies OK and then we presented as a PDF or your room in a village for the after visiting to talk at half past 4 on a Sunday afternoon and all this really great stuff done on analyzing and providing information has has got lost communication level who had started to look at ways that we can provide better ways of communicating this data and based on this adjacency based on this technology cycle we started to develop augmented reality projects start to provide new ways to communicate data augmented reality is taking show you will note taking a live video feed and the altar insert into that information about your context about your environment and the things like navigation system used for his applications marketing advertising information systems that what they don't really do is really bring
geographic information into their coal and that's what we do so we invented this stuff circle initial plants reality we call duality It's about integration geospatial data into augmented reality to build new applications to build new ways of interpreting the world take and you could start this talk about the data how open-source stations helped so typical good way that we represent data on a planning application is PDF with a mouse go to the honest if you're
really lucky you get a PDF with a map with some dots on cake but to the end user to me living in this in this rural environment are still not getting information about how this how the date is affecting me how the new developments that you make I going to make but what we can do
now using do you know about devices using open-source software and nearly all the data you see here is open source data is to provide new ways of 3 realizing that it in a mobile environment to give you better comes so this is where our offices based in central Scotland still just here we've got 3
D zoom pan navigation tools that and there's and we've got
open data models and we've got open data for the terrain model and for the overlays to give us this contextual information it's not the place and that's why I was
in my an effort in our shop where player incidents security risk the idea to share natural virtual reality visualization and so this is a natural
solution these denotes the EC that we saw earlier the some been don't yet this is a this is out of application use augmented reality integrating open-source terrain models freely downloadable geographic data positions 3-D models to create this these visualizations that we see here so we have to rely on some
hardware which doesn't really fall into the scale of this conference terms but then on top of that we write our applications we use physical 1 such won a game in which all have have open source components we use continuous integration we use these services we use a whole bunch of open source components to build the actual application but essentially the thing that
enabled us to build its business was the provision of this Ordinance every Open Data if it wasn't for the the terrain 50 datasets which is the Ordnance Survey providing a national coverage of the 50 meter terrain model the sickle panorama just been renamed also it relaunched is completely new product not just rebranding called terrain 58 we wouldn't be now to build a new business we then build a whole bunch of stuff based on its nearly free this this makable a definition we still have to use the Services but they don't cost is very much to commend implement as open-source software again we use map guide to time of delivery what we understand and this this all comes together take some clever people put them in a room about 18 months and to come out with some solutions that really all possible due to the barriers of entry commercial software and commercial data finnish particle
fraction is really about providing better ways to enable enable that communication platform to go from the Web to these devices OK it's about mobilizing our access to geographic information we offer our citizen consuming isn't a map that is the guy who wants to see what's relevant to them so it's not always about the money he go to to have a dramatic changing the way people understand information from then on the top down not realization to a heads up both mental reality visualization using exactly the same GI tools and techniques for use at the moment I think that His MIT which is
pretty much 1 point in time and and of questions it has so I just blasted you at information there so of the and was it was the people in the middle of the and in the wall of something so where are we read the product I showed you the realization from that launched in July this year get started to use its 1st commercial applications and so there aren't yes style is full of townsman with with no about others yet and once say is this it's problem waiting for so it's a technology waiting for problem to solve we think visualization and geospatial visualizations specifically is 1 of these problems because they were a good fit and so for us yeah the challenge was to use the right tools to solve that a month the president thank you and the the
