Digital Modeling

The City of Fargo website provided our class with an AutoCad map of the Renaissance Zone. It gave us a lot of valuable information to start a 3D model of this area in SketchUp. Unfortunately, this AutoCad file did not have the streets and alleys in place, so the past week I spent scaling and matching pictures from Bing Maps with the City's file. Over the past week, I was able to distinguish the streets and bridges from the property and building lines to make the base of our SketchUp model. I have yet to push or pull the planes of the blocks to add proper depth. Hopefully, this next task is less persnickety/time consuming!
