What is the name of the specialism / sub-field in spacial Data Science where the data relates in some way to physical objects viewed as 3D (graphics) models?, ... that is, excluding GIS and BIM systems. One such example being when applied to the analysis of 3D models of machine parts created by CAD systems in Engineering, where Data Analytics and Data Visualisation may be applied to data arising from that analysis.

There are many possible answers to this question.

Data science applied to mechatronics and cybernetics can involve physical information, which I believe is what you are describing. The DS side of mechatronics often involves IoT and engineering cybernetics principles. More specific sub-fields include design optimization and control theory.

Edit to add a few more examples:

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the answer @BenjiAlbert. Do you perhaps have any other suggestions to add to the list? What about areas of Data Science relating to manufactured or engineered 3D parts / structures or designs e.g. the analysis of data gathered from testing how a proposed car or aeroplane model performs in certain conditions $\endgroup$
