www.3dfrederick.com
.
3D Serves U, is proud to announce the opening of its new website www.3dfrederick.com . 3Dfrederick.com is a new way to see Frederick, MD with your computer. Powered by the Google Earth engine, 3Dfrederick.com is a web site that allows you search geographically information about Frederick City and then go visit linked internet information. It will become a great resource for businesses and organizations to promote themselves through 3D visualization.

Try it out today.

One of our first projects that you can view on the site is a partnership established with the Golden Mile Reborn Project:

This project is a partnership between 3D Serves U, the owners of www.3dfrederick.com and Brian Dinnuno, a concerned Frederick citizen and environmental scientist who developed a revitalization plan for the Golden Mile Area which consists of taking the current unconnected and unsustainable layout and transforming it into a series of interconnected roads, mixed-use buildings, green spaces, and pedestrian friendly walkways. A section of the 2D map focusing on the proposed changes for the Frederick Town Mall Area is located below:

Using the 3D expertise of 3D Serves U, we were able to create a 3D visualization of Brian's plans using Google Earth. You can see snapshots below:



This is a snapshot of the Mall Area from the southwest corner:

This is the same look with the proposed redesign.


This is from the south of the Mall Area

This is from the southeast corner
We even have plans for a grand Promenade in the center of it all with a water fountain



As you can see, 3D visualization can rapidly help us envision plans for the future, and can be a great way to communicate those changes to the general public. Take some time for yourself to see the project in 3D on www.3dfrederick.com . Click on the "Community Resources" Button in the left hand column, scroll down, and click on the "New Frederick Town Mall" and fly around.

If you are a business or organization who wants to promote yourselves through 3D. Give 3D Serves U a call. 240-344-6064 or email us at drobbins@3dservesu.com

On my way home from work, I see smoke filling the skies over downtown Frederick. It was the the warehouse house building owned by The General Engineering Company. I decided to do a model of it before the fire. You can see it below.

3D Virtual Tours of Monocacy Battlefield buildings

I am proud to announce that The Monocacy National Battlefield Park in Frederick, MD has posted three 3D Virtual Tours of some of their facilities on their website. The building models were created by 3D Services owner, Darian Robbins and the videos were created by Park Ranger Tom Gwaltney with guidance from Joy Beasley, the Park's Cultural Resoures Manager. This marks the beginning of a collaboration started last year, when 3D Services approached Monocacy about a way to promote and educate the world at large about the unique history and features of Monocacy Battlefield using new interactive media formats like Google Earth (TM). Below is an example of the video.

Monocacy is working with 3D services to have all their facilities modeled and uploaded to the "3D Layer" of Google Earth (TM). This has a few advantages one of them being to allow users to visit scale models of actual facilities before they come in person to plan their travel to the park or get visually acclimated with the environment. Also, a virtual tour enables a person to see sites that are being renovated and not allowed for public access. The 3D models all have extra information and hyperlinks attached to them through pop-up windows giving Monocacy the capability to present more information about the history of the battle or landmark.

Check out their site and their videos. You can even download video optimized for your Ipod!
