3D Models

From the different photos collected of a landform collected by citizens, a 3D model of the observed landform is created with the help of special software. The blue squares in the picture below represent the different viewpoints from which the photos could be taken.

By turning the 3D model, we can get a good and vivid impression of the landform.
