Wellington 2011

09 Nov 2011

Animation Research Ltd's sports division, Virtual Eye, initially constructed part of Wellington's inner-city in 3D as the surrounding environment of the Basin Reserve for coverage of Cricket International Tests. When One-Day Internationals started being held at Wellington Regional Stadium (the Cake Tin), which is closer to the city centre, ARL/Virtual Eye decided to expand on what was already built. Further updates were added prior to the Rugby World Cup 2011, when the Cake Tin was the venue for Pool matches and 2 Quarter Finals.

Our Wellington 2011 flyover (above) begins in space, zooming down to Wellington International Airport before rounding Mt. Victoria and revealing the Central Business District. The virtual camera then flys over the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa ('the place of treasures of this land') and the Civic Centre, before ascending again for a CBD flythrough to the Cake Tin. The flyover continues over Kaiwharawhara, then circles around as dusk falls to view the central city, before completing a night-time circuit over the CBD and ending with a view from Lambton Harbour as dawn breaks.

New Zealand Cities

ARL has a long history of architectural and terrain visualization - from 3D Resource Planning tools showing GIS data layers in real-time, to the 33 Cities and Ports built for broadcast coverage of the Americas Cup, Louis Vuitton Trophy, Audi MedCup and the Monsoon Cup yachting regattas. In 2009 ARL constructed the city of Auckland in 3D for the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series, and it has since been used for urban development visualizations. We made our home city of Dunedin to visualize the proposed Forsyth Barr Stadium in 2007, and our 3D Wellington is used for flyovers during sporting events. All 3 have most recently been used for night-time flyovers during coverage of the Rugby World Cup 2011.
