CSM 3D VIS™
CSM 3D VIS™ is a new innovative 3-D Conceptual Site Model (CSM) software program designed to create interactive, fully rotating 3-D CSMs with minimal user training. With a focus on contaminated sites, mining sites and natural environments, CSM 3D Vis™ was created as a powerful visual aid, data evaluation and communication tool. As we know, Conceptual Site Models are integral to the evaluation and presentation of contaminated site impacts, remedial/action planning, mine site layouts and permitting. In fact, many regulators and clients require robust CSM as part of regulatory submissions and stakeholder engagements.
Currently, there are significant technical gaps in developing 3-D CSMs in the environmental and mining space. CSM builders do exist, but they are either 2-D simple static models or numerical in nature which require specific, complex and expensive software with a steep learning curve. CSM 3D Vis™ was developed and designed by an amazing team of software developers to bridge this gap. It allows for a wide variety of users, and skill sets to develop robust 3-D CSMs. Further, CSM 3D Vis™ allows you to share your ideas and concepts with your team on-line, with clients, or as part of your reports or presentations.
CSM 3D Vis™ engages the user with a 3-D cube that allows full visualization from any angle. Simply select an asset, point, click, scale, rotate and place on or within the cube from an extensive library of site features such as geological materials, buildings, natural environments, mining pits, waste rock piles, lakes and ponds and sources of contamination. You can download actual site maps, image files, insert photos, data tables or videos of key locations/areas of interest and will have links to reports and data. CSM 3D Vis™ also includes unique features such as creating 3-D mountains and valleys and deforming geological layers using the Deformation Function and a Pen Function to add specific site features.
