Launching map...


At the University of Hong Kong.

This map presents initial trials of methods that can enable designers parametric and categorical control over complex surfaces, point clouds, and heavy data, from site-scale manipulations to the projective visualization of entire territories and land mosaics. The test site is a 27-square-kilometer area of Hong Kong Island that contains a representative sample of the territory's "features," including forested mountainsides, cascading artificial slopes and superimposed public grounds. The model is 100% interpolated from spot elevations, non-urban contours, and two-dimensional feature data.

Presented: 11th Annual SmartGeometry Conference, held at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2014
