[Qgis-developer] QGIS and 3D vectorial data

Dear all,

I am participating in the planning for a long-term project which (if the
proposal gets accepted) may come up with a budget to pay for
some QGIS extensions.

There will be a heavy focus on surveying data in 3D.

My question is: in how far is the QGIS kernel prepared to deal
with 3D vector data? Are the data structures in place and does
QGIS maintain Z coordinates or do they get discarded?

Best wishes,
