A new large Color Shaded Relief Map has been created for Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia and posted for display at a local kiosk. The Color Shaded Relief model was created using a combination of PCI geomatica and adobe illustrator software.
Geo-matching is a site that features some of the latest geomatics hardware such as UAVs for Mapping and 3D Modelling. This information then allows others to compare the various product specifications & read others reviews as a way to help them make better decisions.
The top 5 viewed UAVs for 2014 from the geomatics community from Geo-matching were … http://candiangeo.info/top-UAVs
A color shaded relief (CSR) utilizes chromo stereoscopic techniques to help emphasize the depth of the Z dimension from traditional shaded relief models that already portray the presence of an elevation difference. Using carefully edited RGB (red, green, blue) pseudo colors and then encoding them into the shaded relief image provides the user with an even more enhanced feeling that they can perceive a third dimension from a two-dimensional medium. When a feature of the same color in the image is shaded darker than the shade of its background, then the background color will predominate in determining its perceived depth position in the image.
Digital Terrain Modeling is the process of simulating or representing the relief and patterns of a surface with numerical and digital methods. It has always been an integral component to geology related fields such as geomorphology, hydrology, tectonics and oceanography but over the past decade has also become a major component to non geophysical applications such as GIS modeling, surveying and land use planning.
Terrain Models are derived from data represented by digital elevation models (DEMs) and can include shaded relief models, slope and aspect models, perspective scene generation, and drainage basin analysis (and other models).
A few 3D Toronto images from a demonstration that I gave comparing Esri Arc Scene with FLY in PCI Geomatica. Generated from LIDAR all hits data. The coverage area is for a small portion of downtown Toronto centered around Toronto City Hall.
This is one of several color shaded relief (CSR) models I created of Gatineau foot hills of Quebec. The city of Ottawa is featured in the national capital region near the bottom center of the image across the river just …
