Hello Brian, huge fan of Heron, having a bit of trouble though, think I can use some advice to ensure the plugin works fine.I got everything working right with the exception of 2 parts: Topography & 3D Urban ModelingOn the topography subject I get the next message: "One or more boundaries may be outside the bounds of the topo dataset" I'm not sure if it's the .IMG file I'm loading since I found so many IMG files nearing my polyline area (Miami Lat:26 Lon:-81 aprox.) or maybe my polygon doesn't match the topo area? I have no idea why it isn't working :(On the Shapefile subject, haven't been able to find a Building Height SHP File, so far have downloaded around 8 SHP files which only contain Polylines, my solution is to meanwhile randomize Z heights, but of course this data is not "technically" correct.P.S.: I've already tried all example links and also the ones posted by you and Benjamin in this video.Been strugling last few days, hope you can help me, thanks in advance!!
For urban shapefiles, there is also this site: http://metro.teczno.com/
And of course if you just want to import directly there is now this http://bdon.org/cad/
Thanks Daniel. I do realize there are so many dlls, but these are pre-compiled GDAL dlls that I have yet to learn how to combine into just a few. Once I do, I absolutely will.
For shapefiles of cities, have you tried looking at geofabrik.de? They have a database of shapefiles translated from OpenStreetMaps.
Finally, I think you will run into some distortion errors when zooming out that far, however you should be able to grab imagery even if it's not centered properly.
It is a great plugin, congratulations.
I had to unlock all those .dll by hand to work, could not compile them into a few?
Import shapefiles is amazing, but there no more shapefiles library of cities, right?
A few days ago I made an animation of planet earth mapped to a sphere in gh, it would be possible with your plugin zoom from space to a local town? is too crazy right?
