OpenGeofiction Geographic Map

Posted by theruler on 29 December 2019 in English (English)

Hey everybody in the OGF Community. I have something to propose. Since i wrote a diary about the GauGAN Nvidia software, i recieved a commented which sounded about like this;"We could make an OGF-street view". I noticed it and it sounded really interesting.

Obviously it would be impossible to streetview all of OGF, it would require software and hardware and is somewhat patented by Google, if I'm not wrong.

So i thought about creating an "OGF:Landview" article on the wiki, so we could put a leaflet "slippy map" on the article and create some dots you can click on which would then show an image of the desired place.

There are already articles with these things, but not the same content, such as the EUOIA article with the dots of capitals of countries.

What do you think, could it be a smart thing to visualize your country?

Feel free to comment

  • Sincerely, Theruler.

it was me who wrote that, i actually was about to make a short demo in an area, but the AI isn't really great with making houses or roads, so it would work out best with natural features. i made around 15 images, each one in diffrent location to check how well it would ressemble the OGF world. if you want me to upload them, tell me

@niski Yea you can, we could make a OGF:Landview article soon. It would be a great add-in to introduce people to a specific place without writing a whole article about it

but a OGF:Landscape article could be cool, maybe as a community sandbox where people would add up their locations

Yes, so you know like Google Street View when you drag the man and you see all those dots on the map, it reminds a bit of that

The thing is, these CG images are generic enough that we could just use open-source images from Wiki Commons to illustrate. The unique 'sights' of OGF are famous buildings and unique landforms which would have to be drawn digitally and rendered. I did do a bit of this some years ago, creating Riispere and part of Känton as well as some trains, but it's quite a bit of work. Building scale models and using photographic tricks to make them look real is also an idea. I am working on a hovercraft from Säntjana currently and plan to make a miniature diorama of the city's castle.
