Intro to 3D Geo-Printing

This event occurred Feb. 19, 2019

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on printing geographical 3D models.

This hands-on workshop will explore three types of geographical 3-D 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 (GIS) 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:
