Shadow analysis en Puerta de Arganda, Madrid.

2013/04/03

Hoy publico en español puesto que los datos son en español y yo soy español:-) but if you guys have any doubt dont hesitate to ask… even if you have to use your french i will be around to answer you back… quand même !!!.

La idea era hacer un estudio de sombras de para mi propio uso pero extrapolable al uso para inmoliliarias. El modelado es como siempre usando sketchup y el plugin gracias a Tomasz Janiak:

http://tomaszjaniak.wordpress.com/category/plugin/

Como ejemplo elegí mi propia casa en una urbanización al sur este de Madrid, en Vicálvaro concretamente. Como veis, cuanto más mire al sur más posibilidades hay de que de el sol y por la misma regla de tres, una exposición norte conlleva menos horas de insolación (lo que no quiere decir que no haya sol, claro… y menos en Madrid). Aquí la urbanización a estudio.

La propia configuración de la urbanización va a permitir que sea más o menos complicado que entre el sol por tu ventana, lo que quiero decir es que no es lo mismo una casa cuadrada independiente de dos pisos que una concatenación de bloques puesto que entre ellos también van a generar sombra, incluso obviamente hay que contar sobre todo en medio de la ciudad con edificios cercanos que puedan proyecta sombra sobre el nuestro y por supuesto otros artefactos tipo antenas o postes así como árboles. En este caso concreto esto no se ha tenido en cuenta para simplificar el análisis.

Por otro lado estudiamos el número de horas que da la sombra con cierta orientación (aproximadamente 245º)

Y otra con aproximadamente 46º…

También incorporo el uso de plugin Solar Analysis de Mr Capeluto que se ha tratado en un post anterior, lo que ayudará a tener una idea más clara de por dónde va el sol… como veis el norte está indicado y muestra cómo sale por el Este y se pone por el Oeste… este es un tema interesante a comprender bien, echad un vistazo a esta web de Microsiervos, por cierto interesante siempre:

On va nous déménager alors… Analyse solaire !

2013/04/02

Ma copine et moi on va nous déménager très bientôt alors il faut faire unE analyse solaire. Nantes, la ville ou on habite est connue dans le monde entier pour ses niveaux de pluie, n’importe que CE soit été, printemps… meme si France Météo a dit qu’il va faire BEAU… A Nantes ça ne marche pas comme ça. Il faut maximiser l’exposition pour garantir un montant minimum de lumière du soleil pendant l’année mais… comment faire?.

En rouge chez nous… on a pas encore trouvé notre nouvel appartement alors je vais faire l’analyse ici…

sun_tools_01

J’utilise Sketch-up pour modeler en 3D le bâtiment et Sun tools developé par Guedi Capeluto (Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning. Technion Israel Institute of Technology).

On peut voir quel parcour et a quel heure le soleil passe par là.  Chaque mois un peu plus haute (month 1, month 2, month 3…)

sun_tools_02

C’est très facile a comprendre et va beaucoup nous aider a trouver le trésor le plus important dans cette partie de la France: le SOLEIL !!!!!

http://gcapeluto.technion.ac.il/SunTools/STdownload.html

Plug-in Features:

  • SunPATH: visualization (month and year)
  • SunPOS: Sun Position for a date and time
  • SunVIEW: Axonometric views from the Sun
  • SunPENETRATION: Analyze Sun Penetration/Access in any specific analysis point.

J’espère que ça vous plait.

P.S. Ouais, je sais, mon français c’est pas parfait mais j’essaie alors vous pouvez m’envoyer vôtres doutes en anglais et espagnol sans problème;-)

Visualizing Telco datasets using SpaceEyes 3D

2012/11/05

Hi again,

I have started using this visualization engine to overlay standard ortho imagery, DTM datasets and telecomunication specific datasets… All i can say so far is that it works pretty well!!!. Being able to understand the scope of land use dataset while we swipe different types of images… it works!!

visualizing_telcom

In this particular case a land use classes menu was added so we can easily identify every one of the different types of coverages at the same time we visualize the background we have used to extract that information.

Please don’t hesitate to make questions about it,
Regards,

Alberto

Creating DEM/DTM

2012/06/19

It was 2007 when i finished my master’s degree and wanted to show some videos of procedures. At that moment in time i wanted to find a job -any job- involving GIS and i finally found it dealing with the Geovisualization department within a GIS company… now i happen to deal with DEMs. DTM, etc on a daily basis which is great!!. I hereby show you that video.

Hope you like it,
Regards,

Alberto

ViewTec’s State-of-the-art 3D visualization

2010/09/14

Good news!!!! They’ve probably released this Geovisualization Engine long time ago (It used to be an ‘in-house’ software) but I have just realized. I worked with this state-of-the-art TerrainView 3D software for six months while I was working as a GIS Specialist in Cape Town (South Africa)… What does this software has that no one of other softwares I know have????. Rain, snow, clouds, wind… Athmosferic conditions!!!!  A very reliable package… I have just uploaded a video rendered directly from a pre-recorded flight path… I will try to make my own while I work with this personal license key they have provided me for one month… Here it is!!. Hope you like it mates!.

Visualizing LAS LIDAR data with sketch-up

2010/07/02

While trying to figure out the way to get a 3D model from raw Lidar data, I first opened my LAS file in Global Mapper, exported it to DXF, imported then into Sketch-up and after recording a few scenes, I saved the animation… this is it!.

Data acquisition: How do I know if this river is been well acquired?

2010/06/14

I’ve already entered my river but my imagery was in 2D so… was it well acquired?…  First of all, I import my shape (shp) file into Global Mapper (what a great sofware!) and export my vector file as a KML.

Import my river.kml file into my brand new Google Earth 5.2 or just double-click it in his location… easyest impossible!.

Select it and use ‘show elevation profile’,  a very useful new tool for these purposes…

And that’s it, constant altitude, almost perfect!.

Hope you have considered it interesting:-)

Map24.com; My favorite route planner!

2010/06/03

My very good friend Fernando (a spanish/english like friend of mine:-)) introduced me this magnificent route planner he was using at that moment (three years ago!!!!)… map24.com had a very interesting 3D engine, very easy to use and very reliable… I’ve been using it since but it has never been one of the most famous among route planners in the market…

I strongly recommend it and i really like it a lot! enjoy!

Please, dont forget to turn on your speakers. Even if i first used a different score and Youtube’s elfs told me not to use it (because of copyright authoring) I have chosen this music from their stuff and this is what I finally got…

Hope you like it.
