LuminoCity: a 3D printed, illuminated city generated from LADAR data
April 14, 2014
In this work, we describe LuminoCity, a novel three-dimensional data display. A 3D printed model of Cambridge, MA was generated from LADAR data. A translucent plastic model was then cast from a mold of the 3D printed model. We developed a display system to project data onto the translucent model, and we can project a wide range of analyses onto the city, including satellite imagery and network traffic.
