3D Locator Map Infographic –
Tham Luang Cave - Thailand
01. The project
While working for ZEIT Online for three months in the context of my Google News Fellowship, I made this little 3D locator map of the Tham Luang Cave in Thailand where the football team “Wild Boars” went missing in June 2018.
03. The tools
The graphic was made using QGIS and the great plugin QGIS2Threejs, which allows to overlay satellite imagery onto a digital elevation model to render a 3D map. All design work and a few annotations were later added in Illustrator.
