We took advantage of a slow month in the studio to upgrade our 3D model of Portland, Oregon. For the first time, our model of Downtown has trees and buildings for the surrounding region enabling photo-realistic views in all directions. Using new LIDAR based footprint GIS data from Oregon Metro, we added over 600,000 building objects to our model covering the entire metro area from Forest Grove to Sandy. Over 1,000,000 trees were added to the model to the model from aerial photos. We also upgraded the resolution of our background model everything that is visible from 9,000 feet above the city.
The NC3D Portland City Model is created in 3D Studio Max with Vray and ArcGIS and has been developed since 1992 from models and data donated by numerous architects and public agencies. The model can be licensed for use on design and film projects.
