(UK) July 29th, 2009 -- Quadstone Paramics now provides integrated
support for Google's popular 3D modelling tool, SketchUp, bridging
the gap between transport engineer and 3D modeller. Google's 3D
Warehouse contains thousands of both in house and third party
developed SketchUp models which transport engineers can now utilise
to create detailed visualisations of a given road network.
Paramics' focus on 3D graphics in traffic and pedestrian microsimulation
means a further increase in model detail, aiding model building
and helping to effectively communicate model results to non technical
Speirs, Technical Director at Quadstone Paramics, "Google
SketchUp Integration is a fantastic addition to the Paramics tools
bringing powerful 3D visualisation to the everyday user, no specialist
skills are required. For over 10 years Paramics has been at the
forefront of 3D visualisation for urban planning and traffic engineering,
integrating with Google SketchUp allows our users to drive more
value from the complex simulation models they build".
Since launching the UAF (Pedestrian
Simulation Software) in 2008 the team at Paramics have seen extensive
market pull as government agencies of all sizes look to promote
pedestrians as a more attractive means of transportation with
many high-profile authorities around the world showing an interest
in the software and many new projects underway.
crowd modelling capabilities of UAF make it an ideal tool for
evaluating both existing areas and new proposed developments,
such as retail space, sports stadiums and public transport terminals,
it is also especially useful for evacuation studies.

Quadstone Paramics has driven the innovation agenda for traffic
microsimulation modelling software since the early 1990's. With
over 2000 users in 45 countries, their pedestrian simulation software
tools have been deployed on some of the World's highest profile
projects, by a broad mix of Federal, State and Local Government
Agencies along with consulting engineering firms of all sizes.
autonomously as part of a London Stock Market listed company,
Quadstone Paramics continues to address the changing demands of
the Global Market through offices in the UK and the United States,
along with resellers in Australia, Europe and Asia.
The culmination of over 6 man years of development, the launch
of the Urban Analytics Framework (UAF) Software from Quadstone
Paramics brings vastly improved levels of software capability
pedestrian modelling the world over.
