LA County Hall of Administration in 3D

HOA_3DI wanted to share this 3D model that ESRI created based upon as-built drawing submitted by the County.  Each floor can be turned on and off, with interior walls all there!

I am happy to make the County a guinea pig for the next major change to GIS technologies – moving indoors and into three dimensions.  The interactive nature of this model is very impressive, and I can see a lot of value for a number of things, including:

  • Space management (finding open offices)
  • Asset management (imagine locating where all of the printers are)
  • Personnel management (where to people sit)?
  • Emergency response – this could help direct 911 calls to the correct location and give directions.
  • Evacuation routing.
  • Helping the public find the place to go in the Hall to answer questions:

I’m interested to see what other folks would use this for.

It’s a big file, and you’ll need a pretty good video card, but check it out: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=897659c034d045659b4c414f7ca2a1ae
