Event Navigation

Blender is a powerful open-source 3D modelling, simulation, and game-engine platform with the ability to integrate and visualize georeferenced information. With Blender you can easily import and intuitively interact with GIS data, and turn them into lifelike renderings of natural and urban landscapes. This Geospatial Studio will introduce you to the main features of Blender and provide simple tips for importing, shading, and rendering geospatial data such as point-clouds, raster, and vector data. Please arrive a few minutes early if you would like assistance with installing software on your laptop.

You will need: A laptop with Blender (latest version 2.78) and Blender GIS add-on
