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!. Alberto

The SketchUp 3D API: Working with 3D geospatial data
I hereby post this video by Matt Lowrie (Google). hope it’s interesting for you guys. Alberto
GIS+Architectural scenaries. Awesome!
Even from scratch or from dgn/dxf vectorial format’s contour lines you create your own scenario. Then import your model previously created using Sketch-up (this time i used google’s 3d warehouse, thank you Dilbert). Stamp your house using sketch-up sandbox tools. Then fur your scenario as if it was grass… A little of photoshop like clouds andContinue reading “GIS+Architectural scenaries. Awesome!”
Interesting: sketchup, more than a quick visualization tool.
I’ve extracted this information from the very interesting ‘Sketchup blog’ from Google… They talk about something I have always thought it could happen… Sketchup is not only a rapid visualization tool but a CAD like software with visuallization capabilities which in addition is integrated within a world wide used 3D scenary, perfect for Geovisualization andContinue reading “Interesting: sketchup, more than a quick visualization tool.”
Geovisualization, 3D models and more!
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. Alberto Concejal BA GeographyContinue reading “Geovisualization, 3D models and more!”
More of my 3D video edited scenarios.
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.

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

Vicalvaro Buildings 3D. Madrid, Spain.
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!
Windmills (wind turbines). Geovisualization live!
I will do my best to build a 3d scenario incluiding a few wind generators located very close to Pancorbo Cliff, North of Spain, about 320 km from Madrid. As usual, I started getting a model from 3D warehouse and included inside my google sketch up session… after that it was just placing it inContinue reading “Windmills (wind turbines).

Getting textures from Google Maps – Street View
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 middleContinue reading “Getting textures from Google Maps – Street View”
