United States Maps - Overview

The new, free geocoding application geoDataClient makes is even easier to create 3D views of your favorite place in no time. We recommend to use it instead of the separate Tiger and DEM files referenced below.

Why? geoDataClient does the geocoding, downloading, georeferencing, coloring, and even the scenery creation automatically.

Example:

Alabama - Mobile Bay:

Pensacola - West         31N/088W-30N/087W Tiger DEM

Instead downloading from the two links, you may open geoDataClient. Note the desired top left latitude, 31 degrees N, and the top left longitude, 88 degrees W.

West: -88 degrees, North: 31 degrees

Settings... Quad Size: 1.000 degree,  Align quad to grid, Remove intermediate files

Back to the main window, Proceed...

This is what will be printed to the output window (all you need is check the bottom line, "...successfully finished.")

Get the elevation data first: Shuttle Radar Topography (SRTM) data.
Waiting 10 seconds - request submitted, server prepares dataset
Waiting 20 seconds - maybe repeatedly, that's up to the server's load
Waiting 1 second - ah, the file has been prepared on the server side, ready for download
Waiting 0 second - start the download
Executing HTTP request: "http://tiger.census.gov......" - this is the texture file
Stretching...Shrinking... - do the georeferencing
Download successfully finished. - That's what we've been waiting for

The whole procedure normally takes under one minute.

The result are four files (NNNNNNNN is an arbitrary eight digit number):

NNNNNNNN_1.trf - a scenery file
NNNNNNNN_2.trf - another scenery file
NNNNNNNN_el.tga - an elevation file
NNNNNNNN_tx_c.tga - a texure file exactly matching the elevation file

Both sceneries were designed to give the viewer just a short overview; each scenery renders 100 images creating a very short flyby. To get an impression of the camera motion as a wireframe animation, open any of the TRF files using TruFlite, then press Ctrl+E (Calculate/Preview...). To start the final rendering, press Ctrl+F (Calculate/Final...). To stop rendering inbetween, press Ctrl+T (Calculate/Stop rendering...).

Below is the result. Keep in mind: This is only a rough overview for a first impression. You can greatly enhance the image quality by changing TruFlite's camera parameters like e. g. the output image size and the camera focal length.


The list below contains links to texture (Tiger) and elevation (DEM) data so that you can create images of some of America's most interesting landforms.

Users of TFMAKE don't need to follow the links below: Just specify the northwest coordinates. Type

TFMAKE_3ARCSECOND.BAT -88 31

for e. g. "Pensacola - West" or

TFMAKE_3ARCSECOND.BAT -111 38

for "Escalante - East", and so on.
