to be verified.
Understandably, the industry has been sceptical of the accuracy

Whelans InSites, through its Spatial division, can provide this
outcome to all industries with provable accuracy.
Spatial InSites develops expert processes to provide near
survey-accurate visualisation in photomontage and 3D digital
computer model of the real world.
It is essentially the creation of a dimensionally accurate (height,
width and depth), simulation of a neighbourhood into which
an architect or developer can place a 3D representation of a
proposed development. The result is a product that is accurate
and easily understood by those who are not familiar with
To obtain an accurate and outstanding result, Spatial InSites has
combined various professional disciplines such as photography,
surveying and photogrammetry to solve real world modelling in a
dynamic computer environment.
Photomontage, when set to the geometry of the human eye, is
extremely effective and mathematically reliable to demonstrate
an observer’s line of sight, or the effect of a design structure
blocking a view.
The methodologies of Spatial InSites have been developed in
ActronAir has expanded its product portfolio from a successful
base of its own Australian-made ducted air conditioners to now
provide a more extensive range of air conditioning systems.
The company has been appointed the distributor of Samsung
System Air air conditioning products for the specialist dealer and
commercial market in Australia. Samsung’s wall hung models
will be the first to be added to ActronAir’s offering, from mid-2008.
“ActronAir is always looking for ways to further extend its service
and offerings to the industry,” said Robert Mundy, Managing
Director of ActronAir.
“We firmly believe that this distribution initiative will provide our
customer base with access to products which are complementary
to the ActronAir range, and all within the established framework
of the ActronAir Customer Care culture,” he added.
Both companies are known as digital innovators, with a
reputation for cutting edge technology and quality. ActronAir has
built its name as a leading Australian manufacturer of energy-efficient, world-class product while Samsung is recognised as a
top international brand.
A major benefit from the new arrangement is that ActronAir,
well known for its excellent customer care culture, will be
responsible for the technical back-up, warranty and spare parts
collaboration with Professor John Fryer, a photogrammetrist,
academic and author who has agreed to audit and certify
the photogrammetric processes that forms the basis of the
photomontage and virtual simulations.
Seamless combination of photo with design view results in an
accurate representation of the proposed development in the real
Spatial InSites has a proven history in land and property
surveying. Its photomontage is not merely an ‘artist’s impression’
but a traceable mathematical solution.
The final result is more like a 3D plan, being an accurate
representation according to the design dimensions and positioned
with respect to the standard Australian mapping coordinate
system (MGA) and the Australian Height Datum (AHD) for
InSites photomontage and 3D simulations have been developed
as a standalone product and as part of a 3D digital model in a real
world view including survey accurate representation of existing
and design structures.
The final product can be used in negotiations with Councils
or in legal disputes. Imagery can be supplied as computer
files or in high quality colour hardcopy and supported by
a detailed professional report certifying the accuracy and
auditable process used.
