Workshop – Digital to Physical: Using GIS Technology to Create 3D Topographic Models (Justin Sorensen, Creativity & Innovation Services, GIS Services)

February 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm MST

What do you get when you combine the power of GIS (Geographic Information Systems), 3D modeling, and 3D printing? That’s just what you will discover in this workshop presented through Digital Matters. Justin Sorensen (GIS Specialist at the J. Willard Marriott Library) will demonstrate an in-house method developed to generate and print 3D topographic models of areas around the world. This workshop will focus on publicly available resources for acquiring elevation data, software, and processes for converting data into 3D models, and the resulting model outputs when using a 3D printer. Additionally, Justin will be introducing a new project in development at the Marriott Library that brings together printed 3D topographic models with the visualization power of a GIS data projection system. In-person participants are encouraged to wear a mask.
