There was a time that building graphics were hand sketched with minimal detail, just enough to give you a good concept. Fast forward to today, where a graphics company like us can show you every detail of a building, inside and out of a building.
In a recent post by the New Your Times, they created a simple 2D site map showing almost every building in the United States. Creating an opportunity for us to connect with the country’s cities and explore them.
Revealing as what Andy Woodruff, a cartographer, calls “the sometimes aesthetically pleasing patterns of the built environment.”
As you can see from their map, today you have many options as to how you want to show off your building, development, campus, city, etc. We have seen over the years the diminishing demand for simple 2D site maps to wanting more detail and complex of a 3D site map.
3D site maps maybe more intricate in detail but bringing an area to life as if you are really there is what sells people. 2D site maps are great for large areas (such as mapping the whole United States) or for background images in your HVAC system. Detailed buildings and site maps gives your clients a realistic view of what is or what could be. Giving you unique renderings to be used for planning, sales purposes and graphic navigation at a fraction of the cost of traditional architectural drafts.
