Up & Running with Muk3D
This tutorial provides a high level overview of Muk3D including how to accomplish simple tasks such as setting up project files, importing data, creating dams, calculating embankment and storage volumes, creating outputs, etc.
The tutorial relies on the "Pine River Hills" sample dataset provided when you set up Muk3D.
Save & restore viewpoints
In Muk3D, users can save specific view locations to ensure consistent snapshot angles. By setting a preferred 3D view, one can save it for later retrieval. This is especially useful for maintaining alignment across multiple snapshots. It's crucial to restore viewpoints with the same vertical exaggeration as when saved to avoid unexpected results.
Create a georeferenced overlay
Using Muk3D, you can overlay a georeferenced air photo on a base grid to highlight the dam. With the Tex module, the dam area is colored differently using the dam's footprint. After blending this with the air photo, the dam stands out in the image. Users can then return to saved viewpoints to capture snapshots.
