Building geometry from topological data

1. Topographical diagram of a selected territory
(The diagram shows selected points on the map and their distance from current sea level.)



2. Compression of the different diagrams into one 3D object
(The selected diagrams were processed by the Agisoft photoscanning software. This software builds 3D geometry from image data. It recognizes them as photographs taken from the same focuspoint showing the same image, only with small differences.)




3. The glass replica
(Different variations on the presentation of the object.)
