Use of IMAGINE Lab 3D models

The IMAGINE Lab creates and maintains 3D models of the Georgia Tech campus and the surrounding city of Atlanta. The models are available to the Georgia Tech community for academic and research purposes. The models are used in a variety of applications. Below are examples of use.

The IMAGINE Lab's models were used during the semester as a base and context models for architectural projects/sites. They helped inform tree canopies and tree placement on site, proximity, and size of existing buildings, and contours of the existing topography.

"The IMAGINE Lab model is used in our work as a reference piece to build 3D solid fluid domain of the MRDC area to perform CFD analysis. The model area is first visualized in Autodesk Inventor (Figure 1), to find accurate dimensions and relationships between the buildings. Figure 2 illustrates the MRDC Complex built within the ENVI_MET software package."-Yogendra Yoshi

"We used the model provided to us by the IMAGINE Lab continuously throughout the semester to develop our buildings. Having a 3D model of the
site let us design a building that realistically relates to the site context, produce drawings with context, and allowed us to render realistic renders.
Essentially what each student did was design their building, then place it into a copy of the model given to us. We then could make changes to our
building dictated by the topography, other building heights, or if the structure of the interstate bridges deemed it necessary. Having that context
was also especially invaluable when we were cutting our sections, and explaining how our building related to the roads, bridges, and level changes."
