Welcome to my Pan-Canadian Future Skylines Project! This thread is a compilation of my 3D skyline modelling work that I have been working on since March 2020, a project I started working on during the initial COVID-19 lockdown. I create massing models of proposed developments using SketchUp, geolocate them, and then insert them into Google Earth in order to effectively visualize the impact these developments have on their local cityscapes and skylines. I am doing this for the long-neglected and attention-starved smaller cities across our country and am always working on adding new cities to my project. The eventual plan for this project is to build a system so everyone can view my models publicly online. The online version of Google Earth was initially a hopeful candidate for this, but there appears to be problems with adding in KMZ files. I am still in the process of figuring out a way to make it work, and I will post a link once it is ready.
Additionally, I have added a development tracker spreadsheet on Google Sheets as my next phase of the project, to organize and consolidate information about all of the proposals in my models. The sheet is currently read-only, but I plan to eventually open it up so other people can add in information if they want to. I will update this post once it becomes publicly editable.
I am excited to continue updating my project cities well into the future. If you're interested in my work, check out the Instagram I made for my work: @pancanadianskylines
I hope you enjoy!
