Simple 3D Buildings

Posted by Chetan_Gowda on 21 August 2015 in English (English)

Mysore Palace ( Kannada: ಮೈಸೂರು ಅರಮನೆ ) also called as Amba Vilas Palace located in the city Mysuru, Karnataka, India.


Started this small project a week ago, looking into Palace photos and OSM wiki on Simple 3D buildings, Kendzi JOSM plugin developed this simple geometry building.

The whole building is marked as building = yes on top of it everything is building:part = yes. Texturing is another important thing in 3D development. Used Hexadecimal colour codes to building facade and roofs.

Kendzi3d is a useful plugin for JOSM for 3D mapping. It renders the building parts immediately as soon you change the height, min_height, building:colour… etc tags with out uploading the data to the OSM.

This is so beautiful! How many hours did it take to map the building in OSM? How did you get the correct dimensions?

Thanks @PlaneMad, @mustafakamil, @hungsoon. It took me around 4 days to do. The dimensions are assumptions. In Default, building parts are is measured in meters in OSM.

When I open your F4map link the building appears all white and the onions on top are white cylinders.

@spongezob there is a rendering issue from F4 map. After they resolve it, you can see it clearly. Currently roof’s are not rendering.
