improvements in 3D symbology

Hi Community,

Following video shows the improvements we are doing in symbology for gvSIG 3D in gvSIG 2.0 series. We added a new symbology panel (still in development) for 3D symbols. Now you can symbolize your layers with simple markers, picture markers, 3D objects and particle systems... :)

These advances came with "España Virtual" Project, and right now we are working towards an alpha release of the 3D extension for gvSIG 2.0.

Last workshop of "España Virtual" project

Hi all,

We just came back from the last workshop of "España Virtual" CENIT project. It was held at IGN (Instituto Geográfico Nacional) headquarters in Madrid. We saw very interesting and high-level presentations from the members of this project, and we tried to do our best in our turn showing our last developments... :).

We were glad to see gvSIG and specially gvSIG 3D being used in very different scenarios, from scientific visualization to building representations.

From this blog we want to thank all this people (administration, companies and universities) for making this project possible and for pushing gvSIG and gvSIG 3D.

We'd like to thank to Prodevelop for trusting us in this adventure. Specially to Nacho Brodín, Viqui Agazzi and Miguel Montesinos. Also thanks to the people of Deimos for their patience and their great work coordinating this project (specially to Jorge Blanco, Miguel Lizondo and Carlos Fernandez).

We will show some of the work done in the scope of this project in future posts.

Improvements in elevation layers

Hi community,

This new video shows the new system to load elevation layers and how osgVirtualPlanets deal with overlapping layers. Before this change gvSIG 3D (gvSIG 1.x series) cannot show the overlapping zones and the rendering was done using fixed pipeline, now (gvSIG 3D for gvSIG 2.0 series) this areas are merged in realtime in a terrain shader.

There are changes in lighting calculation that give the 3D view smooth shading feeling and a better appearance.

We'd like to thank to Maria Ten for her work, and we wish she feels great in her new job.
Thank you and good luck Maria!!! ... :)

Loading netCDF Files in gvSIG 3D (for gvSIG 2.0 series)

Hi all,

We are very busy preparing an upcoming Workshop for España Virtual project, but we think it could be interesting to show to you these new features: loading raster and vectorial netCDF files.

This work has been done with the kindly help of Nacho Brodín and Jorge Piera, both from Prodevelop. Thank you guys!!

First video shows gvSIG 3D loading a raster netCDF file and working with it.

The second one shows a ship travel vectorial netCDF file, and how to apply a time filter.

Sorry for this short explanation, more videos are coming soon!
