Would you like to learn more about our method for creating papercraft raised relief maps from digital elevation data? We wrote a paper describing the method that has been included in the proceedings of the 10th Mountain Cartography Workshop. You will find out
- what makes a “good” mesh for papercrafting,
- how we optimise the underlying triangulated irregular network (TIN) to obtain such meshes,
- how our results compare to those of other common methods (regular grid, greedy, QSLIM), and
- tips for unfolding and building the final model.
