Postforum was started in 1996 and was, for a time, the biggest independent forum for Mac-based video professionals. Sadly, that time has passed, and I no longer have time to maintain this site, which is continually overrun by spammers. As such, all forums are in Moderation mode, and will no longer be moderated. Whatever you post is going into a black hole. I'm leaving the site up for posterity, and will prune spam as i can. It was fun while it lasted! -perry



 Subject: 3d GPS terrain maps

I would like to create a 3d model of a real existing terrain so that I can move about the terrain model at eye level.

At one time there were 3d terrain maps of everywhere, US Government maps I believe, that could be converted into 3d models. Certainly they were extracted from GPS data. But I have lost the source.

If you know of sources of these GPS terrain maps (free is good) and also the necessary software to convert them into 3d models in a format that can be used in Electric Image on a Mac, I would appreciate hearing from you.
