In addition to the features of the base version, the premium one provides: * Import of buildings from OpenStreetMap with default materials, tileable building textures and UV-mapping applied * Default materials and textures to mimic lit windows for a late evening setting * Import of forests and single trees as 3D objects * Options to use custom tileable building textures (e.g. from * Satellite imagery and web maps projected on a terrain

blender-osm (the base version)

  • blender-osm imports buildings from OpenStreetMap without any texture applied. Building height and number of floors are used to create the final scene. Composition into 3D parts for a building with the complex structure is also processed. A large number of roof shapes is supported. If a terrain is provided, buildings are placed on the terrain automatically.
  • blender-osm downloads and imports real world terrain data with resolution about 30 meter.
  • blender-osm can import GPX-tracks and project them on the terrain.
  • River, lakes, forests, vegetation are imported as polygons. If a terrain is provided, they are projected on the terrain.
  • Imported roads, paths and railways have width. They are represented by Blender curves with a profile object. If a terrain is provided, roads are projected on the terrain.
