GFZ GIS DAY 2012: Tangible printouts from GIS-data

  1. 1. Tangible 3D printouts from GIS-Data: A work in progress report November 14 2012 Peter Löwe, CeGIT Marcel Ludwig, Section 1.1
  2. 2. Introduction• We use GIS to – process environmental data to trigger decisions –by decision makers. – to derive 2D maps from our data for the web or print to communicate. – to derive volatile 3D visualisations using GIS or other tools – to communicate.• Things get tricky – When the decision makers have to interact with the data. – Decision makers aren‘t GIS ninjas – and don‘t carebother to read the manual. – Volatile 3D images on 3D Screens like Geo Walls, Visio Labs etc. don‘t last for later reference.• Duh.
  3. 3. Skills + Tools + Standards: The whole is larger than its parts• GFZ Section 1.1 is successfully operating a 3D printer - mostly for rapid prototyping• The Centre for GeoInformation Technology (CeGIT) is involved in R&D projects involving GIS and complex data: – TRIDEC-Project: Quality checking for „2D+Time“ data stacks. – Upcoming projects: Visualizion of geological bodies in 3D.• Common technological standards allow Section 1.1 and CeGIT to share their ressources.
  4. 4. 3D Printing ? 3D Printer „RapMan 3.2“ Mr. Marcel Ludwig, GFZ Section 1.1

  8. 8. Model vs. Printout of a Tsunami Simulation (Tohoku 2011) Printing time: 11 hours
  9. 9. THAT is a Tsunami ?• It‘s a space-time cube (STC) of a tsunami.• A STC is a „stack of 2D maps“.• The maps show the same phenomenon at consecutive points in time.• The „paper“ is removed, „ink“ stays. STC of a travel path http://www.itc.nl/personal/kraak/1812/t-3D-napoleon-final.jpg
  10. 10. The Tohoku 2011 Tsunami
  11. 11. The road ahead• Complex 3D bodies: Achieved• Multicolor 3D bodies: Pending• 2.5D Surfaces (Elevation models): In the works• Hardening of the workflow: Ongoing• Mash-Up of different information layers in one print: 2013 Next Goal: Long Night of Science 2013
