“Terraimages” are simply images you upload which are then projected on to the 3D map background. The most common use case is uploading a plan area.

Just the Basics… (for now)

There are two ways to upload a Terrain Image.

  1. Simply Drag & Drop a PNG, JPG, or GIF anywhere on the OpenCities Planner Interface.
  2. Open the Terrain Image Tool:
    Then click the button to locate a local file to upload.


Advanced: Add a worldfile to geo-reference your image

Basic Task & Example

Task: Upload an image and use the tools to ‘fill’ a city block.

It’s just a basic example, but here you can see an image we used to replace a parking lot.
