Join the Arizona State University Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on printing geographical 3D models. Participants will follow along with their personal laptops.

This hands-on workshop will explore three types of geographical 3D models thus far experimented with:

• Physiographic (topographic landscapes)
• Cityscapes (built environment meso-scale)
• Building and landscape architectures (built environment micro-scale)

In all three of these instances, the primary data inputs will be publicly available geospatial datasets.

We'll explore both web-based data extraction services that quickly provide appropriate data for 3D printing, as well as raw data that requires some basic pre-processing in a free, open source geographic information system software application called QGIS.

Participants will need to bring their own computers and pre-install the free software needed to follow along with workshop activities:

• Meshlab:
• Makerbot Print:
