A week or so back I met with Stuart Jeffries a writer for the Guardian to chat about our interesting in work in Iraq and our exciting future in 3D. The result was what seems like a popular article in the Guardian Cities blog.
Whilst many people have quoted other passages one of my favourites is this:
To my eyes, there’s a touch of the pleasure of playing video games to Elliot’s work – certainly it looks like great fun.
He’s not wrong!
I’ve read a lot of the comments, both below the article and on twitter. To be fair I think it’s been quite a positive response, clearly the article didn’t address everyone’s concerns though. As to the usual trolling well that’s the internet. I think I will write a response to the article and post it here in the coming days, more for my therapy than anything else. Thank you to all those who retweeted the story and responded both positively and negatively to the story, I genuinely mean that.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here sorry! I’m getting ready for my Miami PathFinder workshop but as a bit of break I’ve been working with CyberCity3D data of my home town in ArcGIS Pro. Here’s what I like, drag ‘n’ drop, split screen 2D and 3D and I love being able to connect the views so as I zoom and pan in 2D I get the same actions in the 3D pane (or vice versa). You don’t have to have the, linked but it’s fun. I also think being able to do 2D and 3D on one paper map layout is going to give us some interesting maps.
If you’re based in Sedbergh and want to us this 3D model, please don’t hesitate to get in contact!
