Tárrases, 3D

This is still work-in-progress (Thilo just uploaded new, incomplete version), but it is way too cool not to share. Totally cool.

Happy mapping.

Wow, that is extremely nice! I imagine some point far down the line the ability model cities is a possibility too?

Wow, although would Puerto have issues with flooding?

Wow! That's fantastic - a little bit rough around the edges but still incredible. Tiles are loading up a bit too long and sometimes they just disappear, but it's propably the fault of my computer/internet connection so don't worry 'bout that.

@ilikemaps - flooding?

The 10m contour is fairly close to the shoreline in most of the Puerto area. Don't be deceived by how the vertical scaling gets rendered. The built up area at e.g. Canales is more problematic, sure - that's basically sea-level development.

Flooding isn't going to come down the river - the river is too short and small (on an island 30km in length, how big can a river be?) to have that kind of volume effect, and anyway, in a high-precipitation climate (as is intended for the island) flooding would, counterintuitively, actually be less of a concern, as drainage patterns are adapted to large volumes of water.

Sea-flooding is of course an issue (i.e. storm surges or global-warming sea level rise). This simply is realism, though, isn't it? Humans love to build big cities where flooding is a problem (New Orleans, anyone? Maldives? Amsterdam?).

@Luciano Are there any natural disasters? (Tsunamis, Hurricanes, etc.)

For anyone who's wondering, the "v=3" in the URL exaggerates the elevations by a factor of 3. Switching it to "v=1" will show everything without exaggeration.

Btw I can't figure out how to tilt/pan/rotate/etc with this viewer...

Isleno, you rotate with right click and moving the mouse, zoom in by scrolling ;) .

What wonderful work! I'm on mobile right now so I can't zoom or rotate but I will look at it properly the next opportunity I have.

@isleño -

rotate : hold the right mouse button, drag horizontal

pan : hold the left mouse button, drag

tilt : hold the right mouse button, drag vertical

@Kai -

Natural disasters are realistic. So, of course. I have not actually written about any specific ones in the history, so far. I suspect some kind of major disaster played a role in Duque Omar's success in liberating the island from Castellanese control in the 18th century, however.

I'm on a Mac... usually ctrl-click functions as right click, but it doesn't seem to work in this case.

Nice, can we get an autogenerated heightmap for new countrys?

Comment from Luciano on 11 February 2017 at 02:00

@martinum4 - uh. . . Sure. You wanna write the code for that? Paxtar has been working on it for a few years now.

This is incredible, you must be so happy with this.

Can you change topoMap layer to other topographic layers

Hide this comment

Comment from Luciano on 11 February 2017 at 11:17

@Heho5000 - I don't understand your question. Do you mean various OSM topo layers (e.g. Cycle Map layer)? The answer to that is no. The only layers in OGF are the ones you see.

WOW! Great work. Which steps should we follow to create a topo map? Thank you!

That looks great! Though I too was confused at first about the slight height exaggeration xD Congrats Tilo and Luciano!

It is incredible, fantastaic... breathtaking :O.

I want to do this! How do I start with countour lines?

@isleño - the 3D window now has view controls for panning/rotating that should appear in the bottom left corner of the screen. Apparently there are problems with Firefox, but it seems to work fine in Chrome and IE. Can't say anything about Safari, just check it out.

Thanks Thilo, it works! :-)

This is so cool! I also saw the January Islands one, really great.

Finally got it to work (my internet connection). It is wonderful - I must get on with my contours (maybe half way now!). Happy mapping.

I just now saw it too. I did see your topo version of Tarrases, and it's amazing. I love how you can do a whole slew of elevations -- it can be very addictive. Good job on all your works.
