Sunny Days Over 3D Cities
By Henry Woodbury
Google Map-like pan, zoom, and search features make it easy to explore these candy landscapes, until one reaches the edge of the model and the world either fades or flattens — as in the screen capture of Guangzhou below.
Oddly, the Edushi artists generally point North 45 degrees off vertical (counterclockwise). This means that the 3D maps don’t align with common roadmap or satellite views.
I live in Guangzhou and I think it’s really so cool and useful. But….Does anybody know what type of software they use to make these maps?
