INFOMAR 3D Maps

The 3D Maps were created using a Red-Green-Blue (RGB) on Black Background ChromaDepth® 3-D Colour palette. ChromaDepth® is a patented system from the company Chromatek (http://www.chromatek.com/ ) (a subsidiary of American Paper Optics) that produces a 3D effect based upon differences in the diffraction of colour through a special prism-like holographic film fitted into glasses. Essentially, you are encoding depth into the image by means of colour.

Any image can be given a 3D effect as long as the colour spectrum is put into use with the foreground being in red, and the background in blue. From front to back the scheme follows the visible light spectrum, from red to orange, yellow, green and blue. ChromaDepth® 3-D works extremely well with bathymetric and topography data, and the 3D effect is still noticeable without the 3D ChromaDepth® glasses.

The 3D Maps show both the onshore and offshore surface. The offshore surface is made up of marine mapping from the Irish Government INFOMAR (INtegrated Mapping FOr the Sustainable Development of Ireland’s MArine Resource) and INSS (Irish National Seabed Survey) Projects (multibeam and lidar 10m), European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) digital terrain model (463M) and The General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) a global 30 arc-second grid (approx 927m) data. The land elevation data from the SARTEM programme of NASA and NGA (90m Digital Elevation Data) was used for the onshore surface. All of the data used can be downloaded for free.
