SatelLite Imagery Projected on 3D landscape model
Open Source API Calling RayShader Notebook
The open source Jupyter notebook (access through OpenTopography's GitHub) creates realistic landscape 3D model renderings by using the RayShader library in R. This notebook calls the USGS 3DEP Lidar API and a 1-meter resolution satellite imagery API to produce these renderings. Users can input spatial extents within the continental United States and produce their desired rendering of the input bounding box. These can be used for data visualizations, mapping, planning purposes and a variety of other use cases.
