This is the high quality version of the software/workflow demo we did for EsriUK’s ‘Faces of Analytics’ webinar series.
ArcGISPro’s new animation features are surprisingly easy to use and can give you some great results! As per usual CyberCity3D buildings and Blue-sky International’s National Tree Map make an appearance.
Like this? Just wait till you see what Nicholas Duggan has done in ArcGISPro with our new mapping templates!
I’ve been busy this weekend making some of my old demo videos more ‘presentable’! We (Garsdale Design Limited) purchased 3D Sedbergh off of CyberCity3D so that we had a test bed for 3D workflows and so we can go outside quickly and check the model ‘in the field’ as it were…
smart cities start with smart data
I personally wanted Sedbergh my home town in 3D as I’m quite frankly fed up of seeing cities get all the fun 3D data. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, forget smart cities, what about smart villages and towns?!
People really struggle with CityEngine and what it can do, this is understandable as CityEngine is a very versatile and technical software tool. We often start with pretty imagery and nice 3D models but we embed intelligence, the underlying 2D GIS data we already knew about. What we do (amongst other things) is create nice looking 3D basemaps and take your 2D data and make them attractive and importantly useful.
This Sedbergh model we’ve added some landuse data (polygons and points) these represent trees, Listed Building status and community buildings. For planners and architects imagine visualising your plans for a site with this technology. If you want to view and interact with a Sedbergh model (not quite the one on the video) you can do so here.
I wanted to share some thoughts and experiences about my time with Garsdale Design so far:
I must say the knowledge that Garsdale Design staff combines is very deep and very well balanced, evenly among Architecture, Heritage, Urban Planning, GIS, 3D Modeling and Visualization. Everybody has their own field of expertise, interests and great specialization. Having said that, it becomes clear that we are proud to be able to address an extreme range of different jobs. And this shows in the people that contact us from many sectors, from all around the globe. This feels wonderful.
The services we offer are unique. The consulting we provide is rooted in deep knowledge of theory, but also practice – which is essential.My own expertise is 3D graphics. I’m specialized in modeling, texturing and rendering detailed cityscapes. I hope I can further explore this field in future. As we will be growing as a company, I hope to get a hold in the visual effects and game industries, providing unique services to produce high-quality 3D city content.
