QGIS Crowdfunding: 2.5D Rendering of buildings/polygons

Example of a 2.5D oblique view rendering

QGIS already supports various different renders, such as categorized, rule-based, point-displacement, heatmap, etc. - which allows for advanced cartographic representations. In addition, there are plugins available, such as "qgis2threejs" or "QGIS Globe", which allow to view and export QGIS data in the third dimension. While these plugins are very useful, there are also limitations: they are not fully integrated with the QGIS styling mechanisms and can't be integrated in the QGIS print composer for  high-quality printing.

This crowd funding project aims to extend QGIS renderers with oblique views. The third dimension of the polygon is controlled by an attribute or expression and global angles. The representations can be combined with other QGIS styling options, such as symbol levels, layer effects, categories and rules.

This project is primarily financed by ADUGA and the regional council of Picardy in France. However, of the 20k Euros, 5k are still missing, to fully implement the project.

Thank you for helping us out by contributing to this crowd funding campaign over at OpenGIS.
