site model attempt.3dm (2.3 MB)

I’m trying to create this as a 3d model in Rhino for my university project, however I don’t have very many contours and so have been struggling.

I will be designing a building that will be set into the cliff so it needs to be fairly accurate.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated :slight_smile:

Can you find and ordinance survey map of the area and use the contouring info?


#3

It’s in Iceland and have been struggling to find much information for the site area.


#4

Can you share GoogleMaps coordinates of your site?


#5

It’s 63.811557, -22.710664 (Reykjanes peninsular, Iceland)


#6

Do you have GIS information available to you usually for a small fee you can get the contours that are very close 1’ intervals?


#7

I don’t know, I’m not very knowledgeable in this area so don’t know where/what to look for.


#8

I looked at GoogleEarth since you can get the 3d topography from there, but that area unfortunately is not well detailed, so it will not be helpful in your case, sorry. I am sure there are other resources online to check. Good luck!

Hi Ed,

I’ve been on the Icelandic government website and that’s where I got the 20m contours from. I have emailed to see if it would be possible to get something more detailed but don’t know if I will get anything.

I went on the other link you posted and downloaded these for free DTED_W20N60.ZIP (625.5 KB) DTED_W30N60.ZIP (673.3 KB), but don’t know if these are something I can use and if so how do I use these files.

Thanks,

Hi Natasha,
Usually you get the vector file from them, I would email them back and
ask if that is possible for them to do.
Hope that helps
