PRECISE 3D CARTOGRAPHIC DESIGN USING BING-MAPS RESOURCES, 3D BLENDER AND THE SPECIALIZED BLENDERGIS-ADDON APPLICATION
3D cartographic design is successfully implemented using the modern resources of Bing-Maps, Blender-3D software and the BlenderGIS-addon application. In addition to the quality of the resulting end-models, the performance of these programs and applications is highlighted by its free license and open source. In the present study, a 3D model of a part of a geographical area in Varna, Bulgaria was developed. For the research purposes the geographic area of the Technical University – Varna, comprising a part of the campus is determined. The finished 3D model contains information with the exact positions and names of the selected objects.
