This work is a projected terrain map of Hamilton city with an animation showing the development of the roads and populated areas from pre-settlement through to 2017. The timelapse shows the growth of Hamilton and its landmarks, with sections of ring road highlighted as they appear. The map elevations are based on NASA Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) Data. The terrain map was 3D modelled using this data and then converted into laser-cut layers which were hand assembled to create the three-dimensional map. This map was then projected onto with an animation based on historic maps and data gathered as part of the exhibition development process.
