A Few 3D Buildings for Bemidji, Seoul, Torino, and Moscow

  1. Hello Frank,
    A rough draft of my work on Bemidji,MN. can be viewed here http://www.czmartin.com/bemidji_3d/ at this site – screenshots of water, septic line layers are included.
    This project is on-going and is to be used for a student presentation this April at BSU. The presentation will focus on 3D modeling in the GIS environment. I will also include GE within the presentation.

  2. Wow Joey, that link you provided shows you’ve done a lot of work. Very cool screenshots!
