          Abstract

          For the bi-centenary of the birth of William Smith a section of the map he designed has been recreated using satellite data and will form part of the EVA exhibition 2016.

          The traditional method for creating 3D landscape models is manually assembled plaster models. For the Jurassic Coast model I have employed a CNC computer numerically controlled milling machine. CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) routing is a way of machining an object directly from (Computer Aided Design) data with a sharp, fast moving tool bit. I am working with geospatial data of the Jurassic coast supplied by Dr Andy Ford, Lecturer in Geoinformatics, School of Conservation Sciences of Bournemouth University, and this data was translated into “stl” files to create complex geometries for milling.
