DescriptionThis Birds of a Feather is for attendees interested in creating the most data accurate models of the natural world. Using Epic Games Unreal Engine as a data visualization tool, real-world plant inventories and populations densities from GIS datasets, combined with expert reviews from botanists, biologists, and ecologists, in collaboration with artists, produced high information fidelity and photorealistic environment game levels. Review of 70 AR and VR ready models, 12 preset foliage brushes representing ecosystems from Maine to Florida, and demonstrations of how to create large open worlds. Come and meet others who share a passion for creating virtual nature.
