UrbanTick – a blog written just a few desks away from where we sit – is looking into the way a city lives and breathes. Part of the work is based on the visualisation of GPS tracks, so linking in with another project here at CASA, Richard Milton has written a script to import GPS tracks directly into 3D Studio Max. The script imports a gpx. file and creates a spline for the path, a marker object and time frames for each point.
UrbanTicks first example movie can be seen below:
We need to check the guidelines on the grant that was used to make the script but we think we should be able to release it, hopefully next week…
