Every 3D map is a surprise in a way, even if you’ve spent your whole life in that location. The elevation dimension reveals the surroundings, opens the crevasses, enlarges the contrast of valleys, reveals the hidden bottom of lakes and the ocean. 3D map is a perfect educational material as well as stunning home or office decoration.

To create a 3D map, I convert the digital satellite data into 3D models and adjust the scale to give an impressive look on wood. Additional vector data is burned with a laser to show shapes of lakes, rivers, borders and in some cases streets, not naming the nominal information that makes these maps fully informative.

I paint water bodies by hand in blue, which makes every map unique.
