Every now and then, we hear of different calamities having struck institutions, countries, and even individual personalities. Surprisingly enough disaster management has proven to be a challenging task to even the most advanced and civilized economies in the world.

The major challenge in disaster recovery is not the remedial and mitigation protocols set in place; rather, it is more of managing human intelligence on how to effectively and comprehensively interact with large and complex data sets.

Take an example of a building hosting different facilities such as malls, hospitals, hotels, and entertainment joints being rescued from a fire tragedy. The commander of the fire team has to visualize too much information within a short span of time and call his or her team into action.

There is the building plan, the map of the surrounding place, computerized platforms for translating signals from various sensors around the building such as fire alarms, and much more.

If such an enormous amount of data is not presented in a way that can easily be comprehended by the different commanding parties; then the disaster recovery process is definitely going to be slowed down and see limited fruition.  

Spatial.com is one such institution that believes in 3D Visualization as the big solution that will enhance and improve all aspects of disaster recovery both during natural and technological calamities.

What 3D Visualizations does to the human intelligence is that it brings it into interaction with real-world entities. Persons responsible for interpreting huge chunks of information do not, therefore, have to struggle while digesting what is required in order to command action.  

Take a case of the building that we had earlier mentioned. If the chief fire engineers had a 2D representation of all the data required to make decisions, they would take quite some time to decide where to start the fire extinguishing process.

The case is however different if at all the decision-making team had a 3D visualization of all the information required in making decisions. They would see the buildings as they are on the ground, the fire alarms among other sensors would pinpoint a particular location in the building hence no guesswork while dealing the huge data sets; in fact, this would eliminate struggles and bias while interpreting information and make the commanding process as fast as possible.


Businesses, organizations, and individuals making use of 3D visualizations in their disaster recovery processes realize an immediate change in how they handle their operations. Exposing any and all information required to a visual dashboard in a 3D model allows for monitoring of every disaster recovery aspect in real time and in a more easier to interpret and execute way.
