Northport, a multipurpose, three birth port, approached Buildmedia to help visualise their future Vision for Growth.

Early in development it was decided to show the greater surroundings of Northport to help with scale and location. I set about researching and implementing methods of rendering hundreds of square kilometers of GIS accurate terrain and satellite aerial imagery into a fast, memory efficient, workflow. On top of this challenge, scattering thousands of trees, and creating realistic 3d displaced water also had to be resolved all within strict RAM limitations.
