“Another conference?!” I hear you all say, well to be fair this one is a lot of fun, especially if you’re in the Esri world. Although there is a lot here for you opensource types too (okay not about the software but the use of GIS at least). Last year I did one presentation at the 3D Mapping forum before the main conference. This year I’m doing two presentations one at the 3D & Lidar Mapping forum (with it’s own venue this year!) and one at the main UC. Oh and I am meeting my business friends such as CyberCity3D…
Working with CityEngine (and how to enjoy it)
So what will I talk about? Well my presentation for the 3D Mapping forum is provisionally entitled “Working with CityEngine (and how to enjoy it)”. This looks like a cop-out presentation title doesn’t it? Well it’s not.
You see the people I talk to who have started to use CityEngine are often stuck in a GIS world or a 3D world or a planning world or an architecture world… you get the picture they’re in their own little professional bubble. The idea of this presentation is to show how truly versatile CityEngine is and that thinking outside the box can help. Come along and see if you don’t believe me!
Oh and the procedural sheep make a triumphant return!
Modelling Arabic Urban Cores using CityEngine
My main UC presentation is really more technical for those interested in getting some ideas and help in how to model real world areas in CityEngine. I’ll explore workflows and strategies which hopefully won’t give all my secrets away!
I’ll look at how I choose what’s an important in a scene and how to think about the limitations of 3D.
