For that level of detail there are 3 options;
1. Build yourself
2. Lidar Scan ( the coolest, easiest and most expensive option) http://lidarvfx.com/
3. Pray to the spaghetti monster in the sky that the SOM model is floating around somewhere and someone decides to post it.
Also, in the latest google earth beta v7, they've updated all the scenery and building 3d data with a more automatic depth acquisition process. This means more detail (tree heights, canopy) but at a same time crude for certain building elements. So you can use this to your advantage by referencing the google earth 3d imagery as you build your own version.
@Phantom & Tuan Tran,
Thank you so much for the upload! You'll never know how much I appreciate this!
Is there anyone that can point me into the right direction to get a 3DS model of Seville, Spain?
Which part of seville spain? The whole thing?
My site is on Calle Santiago, its nearby Metropol Parasol if you can spot it on Google maps.
Try this; you may want to check scale and orientation. You can use google earth as a guide to scale the 3d model.
Thanks @Phantom !!
Really appreciate this. Thanks so much.
@Phantom what your email address?
Hello everyone! I'm an Italian student of architecture and I'm working on a project in San Francisco bay. I am wondering if any holy person could send the 3d model of SF to my email:
enricochionna at yahoo.it
It would be very kind of you.
Thanks in advance.
Hey Phantom, may I ask where you obtain those city models? Is there a site that offers them or did you make them yourself? If you wouldn't mind divulging that information I would be eternally grateful.
The wording of your question makes it sound like I'm at a deposition hearing. I extract the geometry from google earth.
You should have gone through this thread, there was a link posted.
Thank you, but unfortunately I can't open the link you wrote. How can I do?
Perhaps mega is blocked from your isp or country?
Try this link
1). Download .dem data: http://cluster3.lib.berkeley.edu/EART/dem/dem.html
2). Convert .dem to whatever format you need
Hmm, when I click the area of the map I'd like to download, it just sends me to a page with a long of 1's and 0's (presumably code).
And yes Phantom, I'm aware I sometimes write like I'm in a deposition hearing. Not intentional, just the way I think and in turn write.
Does anyone still have the san francisco 3d model? just terrain is fine!
You can rip models from google earth using openGLS straight from your graphics card. You can google how to do this.
Terrain, you can import from sketchup pro. you can google a topography tutorial for sketchup pro.
