Geodata Examples

This page lists all geodata examples that are included in the Tinman 3D SDK.

You can browse and download all datasets here: https://data.tinman3d.online.

Each example includes:

The Demo Application will stream raster datasets from their online URLs, if they cannot be found locally. To run in offline mode, please download the datasets and put them into the corresponding SDK path:

"https://data.tinman3d.online/geo/WorldMachine/Lakes.hgt"
        "$(SDK_DIR)/data.bulk/geo/WorldMachine/Lakes.hgt"
//                            \________________________/
//                             This part is always identical.

Due to the size of the dataset files, we recommend to use a download manager that can handle broken connections.

Alternatively, you can use the Workshop Application to bulk download all raster datasets, by running the following script target:

// Workshop Project (references the "geodata_examples.tws" script):
"$(SDK_DIR)/src.twp/geodata_examples.twp"

// ConfigScript:
"$(SDK_DIR)/src.twp/geodata_examples.tws"

// Bulk download target:
"geodata_examples.tws:download_bulk"

Please make sure to check the MD5 checksums of each downloaded dataset (for example using Total Commander).

Some geodata examples require that GDAL is installed (version 2 or newer).

Commercial

Here you will find examples for high-quality commercial geodata.

Typically, commercial geodata is properly georeferenced and is delivered in handy pieces.

Airbus Defence & Space

Elevation1 - "Highly Precise Altimetric Information"

Elevation1 by Airbus Defence & Space
Mashhad, Iran
Elevation1 by Airbus Defence & Space
Musan, North Korea

This geodata product comes in handy pieces of 1m DEM and 50 cm imagery.

To see this data in Tinman 3D, run the Demo Application and visit one of the predefined location bookmarks (#1 and #2).
