Oran Park LiDAR
Oran Park, located south-west of Sydney, Austrlia, is Sydney's oldest operational circuit (since 1963) and has been home to Australian Touring Car rounds since 1971. Unfortunately, the NSW Government plans to redevelop the location into housing and as such the track will be closed in the near future.
Realising that time was slipping away, Chris Larmour and Brendan Elliott took on the challenge of surveying and collecting as much spatial data about the track as possible in order to recreate the area as a virtual model. The project began in early 2008 as a Thesis project between Brendan Elliott and Chris Larmour at UNSW.
Brendon Pywell (Bob's Track Builder) has used his custom software in order to optimise and manipulate the data and create an accurate yet efficient terrain from the collected survey data. Additionally, Bob's track builder was also used to create the walls, track details and many of the trackside objects. Chris and Brendan created the on-site buildings from survey data and the work was combined to create the finished product.
