New Belgrade Completes 3D Map

26 Jan 2011

Specially convened presentation was held in the council building of New Belgrade which marked the completion of 3D models of this part of the city within a global Google Earth service. New Belgrade became the first municipality in Belgrade with the full presentation on 3D Google Earth service that hundreds of millions of users visits daily.

Special credit for the whole enterprise goes to Zeljko Zdravković, who in cooperation with the municipality of Novi Beograd realized the whole idea. The project to build 3D maps of New Belgrade, including field work and computer modeling took 7 months, and during that time Zeljko completed over 700 different objects, be it on housing, public or commercial buildings. All the buildings are very faithfully presented and passed the rigorous test of authenticity.

Also Google team will visit Serbia this spring, when they will hold a lecture on software to create 3D models for Google Earth, and all interested people will be able to become more familiar with the characteristics of the programs, and even engage themselves in this creative work.

During today's presentation we talked with Zeljko about this project and future plans in developing 3D maps of Belgrade.

How the whole idea of building 3D Belgrade was initiated?

The whole idea of building 3D Belgrade, began spontaneously in the summer of 2009, when they made the first models for Belgrade. Then, unfortunately, Belgrade was 3D province, but now things are completely different.


When the municipality of Novi Beograd recognized the importance of your previous efforts and offered support in the project 3D Belgrade and what are your experience in this cooperation?

I can tell it was on time, because it is now officially the first municipality in Belgrade and throughout the region to completly transferre to the Google 3D world. The call for cooperation came from the assistant to the mayor, Mr. Milos Hetlerović, when we started the project together in March last year. Previous cooperation has been excellent.


Can we expect, after successfully completing the modeling of New Belgrade, other urban municipalities to follow suit and help in the further implementation of 3D building and promotion?

Absolutely. They are planning new neighborhoods of the city like Bezanija, Bezanijska kosa and continued construction of 3D central city arteries with several ambient quarters in Belgrade.


You have been been a member of Beobuild forum for a long time, where you first presented your project. How did the community reacted to this and your other projects?

Beobuild community has given the absolutely largest online support, which personally meant a lot to me. I really sometimes wonder if I'll ever be able to thank all those truly wonderful people, and the amount of genuine support.


Danas je na posebno organizovanoj prezentaciji u zgradi opštine Novi Beograd obeležen završetak projekta izgradnje 3D modela ovog dela grada u okviru globalnog servisa Google Earth. Novi Beograd je tako postao prva opština u Beogradu sa potpuno kompletiranom 3D prezentacijom na Google Earth, servisu koji dnevno poseti više stotina miliona korisnika iz celog sveta.

Posebnu zaslugu u celom poduhvatu ima Željko Zdravković koji je u saradnji sa opštinom Novi Beograd realizovao celu ideju. Projekat izgradnje 3D mape Novog Beograda, uključujući rad na terenu i kompjutersko modelovanje trajalo je 7 meseci, i za to vreme završeno je preko 700 različitih objekata, bilo da se radi o stambenim, javnim ili komercijalnim zgradama. Sve građevine su izuzetno verno prikazane, a prošle su i rigoroznu proveru autentičnosti.

Za proleće ove godine se isto tako najavljuje poseta Guglovog tima Srbiji, kada će biti održano predavanje o softveru za izradu 3D modela na ovom servisu, pa će svi zainteresovani moći da se detaljnije upoznaju sa karakteristikama programa i eventualno se sami uključe u ovaj posao.

Tokom današnje prezentacije razgovarali smo sa Željkom o ovom projektu i daljim planovima na izradi 3D mape Beograda.

Kako je započeta cela ideja izgradnje 3D Beograda?

Cela ideja izgradnje 3D Beograda, započeta je sasavim spontano u leto 2009. godine kada su urađeni prvi modeli za Beograd. Tada je Beograd nažalost bio 3D provincija, ali danas su stvari potpuno drugačije.


Kada je opština Novi Beograd prepoznala značaj tvog predhodnog zalaganja i ponudila podršku u realizaciji projekta 3D Beograd i kako ocenjuješ dosadašnju saradnju?

Mogu reći na vreme, tj. u pravom trenutku, jer je to sada zvanično prva opština u Beogradu i čitavom regionu koja je komplentno preneta u Google 3D svet. Poziv za saradnju od pomoćnika predsednika opštine g-dina Miloša Hetlerovića sam dobio pre godinu dana, dok smo realizaciju projekta zajedno započeli u martu prošle godine. Dosadašnja saradnja je bila odlična.


Da li možemo očekivati posle uspešno realizovanog modelovanja Novog Beograda da i druge gradske opštine krenu istim putem i pomognu u daljoj realizaciji 3D izgradnje i promocije?

Apsolutno. U planu su novi kvartovi grada poput Bežanije, Bežanijske kose i nastavak 3D izgradnje centralnih gradskih arterija uz nekoliko ambijentalnih celina Beograda.


Dugo si član Beobuild foruma, gde si prvi put i predstavio svoj projekat. Kako je zajednica reagovala na ovaj i druge tvoje projekte?

Beobuild zajednica je dala apsolutno najveću online podršku, koja je meni lično jako puno značila. Zaista ponekada se zapitam, da li ću ikada moci da se zahvalim svim tim zaista divnim ljudima, na tolikoj količini iskrene podrške.
