Klaas Dijkstra

October 2011

overview

who am I

  • whythis talk
  • what is GIS
  • what is Blender
  • conclusions / future steps

Overview

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
who am i

Klaas Dijkstra

  • Trafficengineer
  • GIS data analist at Nokia L&C (NAVTEQ)
  • Founder/owner of XYZtens.eu

Who am I

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
why this talk

GIS

  • Blender
  • open source
  • communication
  • kick-off
  • your input!

Why this talk

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
what is gis

GeographicInformationSystem

  • or
  • GeographicalInformationScience
  • or
  • GeospatialInformationStudies

What is GIS

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
g eographic g eographical g eospatial because

withGIS we describe (a part of) ourrealworld:

  • streets
  • a national park
  • a country
  • a continent
  • the world

Geographic / Geographical / Geospatial, because

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
information because

GIS holdsproperties of real-worldobjects:

  • streets (streetfurniture)
  • a national park (plant diversity)
  • a country (demographics)
  • a continent (riverpollution)
  • the world(climate/weather)

Information, because

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
s ystem s cience s tudies because

GIS

  • utilizes (Information) Technology
  • includes geometry tools
    • create / change / remove
    • mathematical calculations
  • includes attributing tools
    • create / change / remove
    • mathematical calculations

System / Science / Studies, because

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
gis under the hood

GIS under the hood

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
slide10

connects objects’ attributes with their location

  • connects objects with other objects
  • simulates the real world
  • is about finding spatial relations
  • uses a map as a visual connector

GIS

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
spatial extract transform load software

FME (www.safe.com)

  • Special GIS application, but...
    • multitude of formats
    • data-centered
    • simple mapping functionality

SpatialExtract-Transform-Load software

2 D

  • 3 D
  • time! (4 D)
  • reality
  • open source
  • IS a visual UI
  • output IS visual

Blender

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
gis blender what is needed

GIS, to

  • process a format readable to Blender
  • Blender, to
  • make attribution available
  • bring in interaction (BGE?)
  • keep coordinate accuracy of original
  • enable the way back to GIS

GIS  Blender: what is needed?

  • visualizinggeospatial data with Blender
thank you

Questions?

  • Shoot me!

Thankyou!

Presentatie in Blender GE

  • Fly-through / animaties / navigatie
  • FME  B (2d)
  • FME  B (3d)
  • FME  B (3d) VR: tracking
  • BGE
  • B  FME
slide21

Waarom Blender en geen KML?

  • Waarom Blender niet via Collada?
  • 3d, 3d +t, navigation, interaction
  • Virtual Tours / AugmentedReality
  • FME transformerEarth
  • Open source, Python compatibility
  • Attribution & editing?
slide22

About me / myprofession

  • About GIS: layerapproach, modellingourworld, cartography/presentation, information, calculation, what-ifscenarios; FME, ArcGIS, CAD, etc.
  • About Blender frommyperspective: art, reality, 3d, time, BGE interactivity
  • Comparison: open v. proprietary, visualapproach, strongcommunity, Python
  • Where Blender can help FME: what is needed?
  • Demos: 2d, 2.5d, 3d, 4d, attribution, editing
  • Build a stripped down version of Blender
  • Futuredevelopments
