The City of Amersfoort

A render of the city center of Amersfoort, right in the middle of the Netherlands.

:mag_right: Link to 6000x6000 render (Amersfoort.webp) πŸ‘•

A historic map is superimposed onto modern height data, showing the difference between what the city looked like in the 50’s vs now.

The off-white color of the map gives the render a paper etiquette look.

Render engine: Cycles with Optix for denoising
Render time: ~3 minutes for the big map (6000x6000px)

Hey, that’s where I live! :slight_smile: Very nice - why did you decide to use Amersfoort for this project?

I’ll be moving there soon :smiley:

Good choice :slight_smile: How did you get the height data, and how did you manage to line up the two datasets so nicely?

The height data is from the AHN3 (Actueel Hoogtebestand Nederland), and the map is from the Eemland archive. They line up so well because… I guess they were pretty good at making maps in the 50’s. I just had to gently nudge some UV’s around, to make it fit perfectly.
