Mapping the Yellowstone Caldera


Published on

NACIS 2016 Presentation
Charles Preppernau, National Geographic Partners

The print and web products for the Yellowstone Volcano required integration of GIS data and 2D illustrations into a 3D scene in Cinema 4D, while preserving correct spatial relationships and staying within the limits of the hardware and software. We present our process for displaying high-resolution, spatially-accurate terrains and cross sections in this talk. While we used Cinema 4D as our 3D modeling and rendering software, these methods can also be used in Blender.
