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!.

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!

2010/03/04

Hi there, let me please show you guys my latest 3D job. I assume mine is the worst among these incredible 3D models created by my argentinian colleague Lisandro Baibiene (and very good friend by the way) …but I am proud they counted on me and allow me to join this winning team… hurray South Africa 2010!. The last one is mine (Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria (Tswane, SA). Hope You guys like them.

Cape Town, South Africa/Karlsruhe, Germany – 21 September 2009 – ComputaMaps, a leading geodata manufacturer and supplier, announced at Intergeo 2009 the availability of 3D photorealistic models of the stadiums of the 2010 FIFA World Cup to be held in South Africa next year.

2010 FifaUsing the latest in 3D software ComputaMaps created real world, fully interactive, geographically accurate 3D models of all 10 stadiums, that combine a photorealistic look with GIS precision. Designed for use in various applications such as navigation, location-based applications, news and media, internet platforms, visitor guides, and on mobile devices, the advanced models provides customers with a three-dimensional experience to browse and explore the 2010 Soccer World Cup venues.

The release of the stadium models builds on the company’s suite of digital 3D city models, presently available for more than 50 cities worldwide.

Three-dimensional models are available for all 10 World Cup stadiums across South Africa:

Green Point Stadium, Cape Town
Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban
Ellis Park Stadium, Johannesburg
Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg
Free State Stadium, Mangaung/Bloemfontein
Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth

Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit

Royal Bafokeng Stadium, Rustenburg
Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Tshwane/Pretoria

Geovisualization, 3D models and more!

2009/08/17

Here you will be able to see some of my latest 3D stuff… A compilation of 3D models, flythroughs and graphic resuorces available… All you need regarding 3D scenarios (heights datasets, satellite imagery and 3D models) and Video Edition… Are you guys thinking about doing something like this?. Please contact me.

More of my 3D video edited scenarios.

2009/08/16

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.

Some of my 3D scenarios

2009/08/16

Barcelona (Spain), Winnipeg (Canada), Las Vegas (USA), Moscow (Russia), Durban (South Africa), Vancouver (Canada) and Tokyo (Japan)… these were some of my Terrain view’s 3D scenarios published by Computamaps, a South African company I worked in not so long ago. By the way it was one of my best professional experiences ever… I enjoyed joining them a lot and It was very difficult leaving them (mainly because of Cynthia’s fruit salads;-)… Miss you guys a lot!!!

Hope you liked them.

One more 3D building. Avenida de la Vega 28108. Restaurante Asiático SHENG. Madrid, Spain.

2009/08/15

I used to have lunch every thrusday there, at the ‘Restaurante Asiático SHENG’. I strongly recommend you ‘entremeses’ (In China you will find them as ‘dim-sum’) and Cantonese duck or Hong Kong duck (this was slightly spicy thou).  Very good food, very fast service and pretty cheap menu: 10,7 €… ideal for an IT worker!.

These views were rendered using ‘V-RAY’ for Sketch-up.

And now, Let’s go to Google Earth!

(I have modified my kml using a extruded placemark we talked about a few posts ago).
Now Let’s have our business in 3D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Vicalvaro Buildings 3D. Madrid, Spain.

2009/08/11

And Now I would like to add one more set of buildings around my house. This is a block of flats in Vicálvaro, Madrid, Spain. This is supposed to be ‘Valderribas’ area… hope you like them!

Getting textures from Google Maps – Street View

2009/08/05

I this post I am trying to show you how easy is adding a building to your scenario using textures from Google Maps (Street View). You have to know a little bit about Photoshop and layers and these stuff but it’s pretty easy thou…

First step, capturing my screen…OMG!!! there’s a tree in the middle of the building I want to model… there is no need to worry about it… Photoshop deals with it very well!!.

vic01_old

vic02_old

vic03_old

And after taking these three pictures I finally get this one (Thank you Photoshop!!!)… I could have done it much better but this is just for you to know the way to do it… its not that bad thou!

vic_lat_def

Second step: Start modelling… Im not teaching you how to model but I can tell you it’s a piece of cake… just try it. Of course I am using my beloved Google Sketchup. I get my current GE’s view:

defi01

Defining XYZ axes, first blocks… just starting dudes!…

defi02

Applying textures I had already got from Adobe Photoshop…

defi03

defi04

And after a few minutes modelling this is what I finally get:

defi05

Hey, It looks like more or less realistic!!!

defi06

Third and last step: Let’s go to Google Earth…

defi07

defi08

These two blocks of buildings are very close to where I live here in Madrid. Vicálvaro is 10 minutes to Madrid downtown by car… It’s far away but now it’s in your computer…cool, isn’t it?.

WMS in Google Earth.

2009/08/04

I have thought there is something very interesting maybe you guys have never tried… using your Google Earth sesssion not just for navigating, finding your house or the place you are going on holidays to… If you use the WMS protocol to show your map over your 3D scenario you are going to add a little bit more of interest to your Google Earth… Lets add a Corine Land Cover Map over my 3D map…but, What is WMS???, What is Corine Land Cover???. Im not even trying to tell you by myself, I am opeining my WIKIPEDIA to tell you, hehe…

WMS

A Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images over the Internet that are generated by a map server using data from a GIS database. The specification was developed and first published by the Open Geospatial Consortium in 1999.

CORINE LAND COVER

CORINE (Coordination of information on the environment) is a European programme initiated in 1985 by the European Commission, aimed at gathering information relating to the environment on certain priority topics for the European Union (air, water, soil, land cover, coastal erosion, biotopes, etc.). Since 1994, the European Environment Agency (EEA) integrated CORINE in its work programme. EEA is responsible for providing objective, timely and targeted information on Europe’s environment.

This is the Official Corine Land Cover key map.

LEYENDA_CORINE

This is the area I would like to know more about, Chiclana de la Frontera in Cádiz, SW of Spain.

chiclana01

This is once we get connected via WMS to the place where you can get those maps (http://www.idee.es/wms/IGN-Corine/IGN-Corine?). By the way you can search on the internet to get more maps… you just have to go to google and search for ‘wms maps’ and you’ll be able to find them. This is a Corine Land Cover Map with information from year 1990.

 chiclana02

This is a Corine Land Cover Map with information from year 2000.

chiclana03

This is what we find after comparing both images… I have compared them using Photoshop CSX but you can go further and use global Mapper, ER Mapper or ArcGIS… As you can see, those areas highlighed are the areas with changes (very small in this case)…

More geographic post to come very soon!!!
