We create 3D maps in two ways, using real highmap with satellite texture or by creating texture by scratch. Which is the best way depends from situation to situation. We start creating map and adding infos, vector elements, text boxes, kompass, additional images and more. Satellite textured map are not good for big printing project becouse of the native law resolution of the satellite map photos. In case of map for big panels we advice to use vector graphics. Satellite texture outdoor map are good for flyers, card and Web site project. 3D outdoor map are also good for Social networks, create eyecach 3D map to generate viral content online.
We create interactive 3D maps for web sites. Use finger or mouse to scrool, zoom in and out. Those 3D interatvie maps are the best way to show trails and path in a ski or mtb resort. Of course a 3D map is very nice to show a mountain area for trekking path and multi-day tours.
