So I’ve been trying to use the Rhino NYC 3D public model but sadly it seems there isn’t an elevation for contour lines / roads etc. Is there anyway to fix this? I’ve seen some threads relating to this but not exactly sure how I could fix this.
I seem to remember someone concluding the contour lines represented two feet, but my memory could be faulty…
Yeah I saw that thread. What does that mean exactly. Is there no way to actually get a elevation from the map?
No, the map is flat. So in any case you will need to elevate your contour lines manually. You might find a DEM somewhere that has the actual height data as points or a mesh…
ah I see, shame. Thanks!
you can make your own 3D model using the plugin AntFarm we are providing. Get a shapefile or a citygml file and you can load them into Rhino using the plugin.
Have a look at this topic AntFarm
