Besides the theory, our tests with four different Geo-DBMSs, Oracle, Informix, PostGIS, and ArcSDE binary and one geo middleware product (LaserScan Radius Topology, not reported here), revealed that also in practice significant differences in polygon validation do exist. It needs no further explanation that this will cause serious problems during data transfer, including loss of data. We urge standardization organizations and GeoICT vendors to address this problem and consider our proposed definition.

Our example application is a 3D “Pilot Book”, which is used to provide navigation assistance to ships entering Hong Kong harbour. We show some of the “Marine GIS” results, and mention several other applications. 1 Introduction: The Real and Simulated World Traditional GIS is two-dimensional and static. The new game technology is 3D and dynamic. We attempt here to develop a “games engine” for 3D dynamic GIS, and to evaluate the process with several applications – primarily a “Marine GIS”, where objects and viewpoints move, and a realistic simulation of the real-world view should be an advantage in navigation and training.
