Litchfield National Park, just south of Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory, comprises a grassy, sandstone tableland with waterfalls and monsoon rainforest tucked in its escarpments. The dramatic landscape around the edge of the plateau makes the place a fascinating subject for a landscape model.
After digitally mapping this tropical terrain, vW Maps sent the terrain model to 3d specialists RapidPro who printed the model in pieces using cutting-edge 3d printing techniques. Natural History Productions of Darwin then assembled the pieces, rendered the landscape as a solid piece of plaster, and polished and painted the model as a hexagonal relief map of the park measuring 1.2 metres in diameter. It was installed in the very popular information shelter at Tolmer Falls by National Parks staff.
