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:
• QGIS: http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
• Meshlab: http://www.meshlab.net/
• Makerbot Print: https://www.makerbot.com/print/
