Environmental modelling

FOI is working on the cataloguing of needs and possibilities regarding the provision and use of 3D environmental models and geographic information for a range of defence applications and, on this basis, identifying problem areas judged to be of particular relevance to areas for continuing investment. 


This activity is conducted with funding from the Swedish Armed Forces and its purpose is to contribute enhanced expertise in the provision and use of 3D geographic information for use, for example, in various forms of simulation applications. This activity supports the Swedish Armed Forces’ capabilities and increases the possibility of identifying and resolving problems in this area.


FOI is continuously developing its competence in methods, techniques and tools for the production and provision of geographic information and 3D environmental models.
