I'm very new with Blender and I'm interested in making 3d visualizations of real Digital Elevation Model data.
Blender is a great tool for 3d visualizations, I've figured out how to create a 3d model from USGS dem data. Please check it here ; https://sketchfab.com/models/7cb8fbac61c0485b8dc0130b7bec2f23
But my problem is texturing this data with real satellite imagery. I've tried my things and searched the internet for solution but all I've found was texturing non-real data. In Terragen texturing a DEM with satellite imagery can be done and what I'm looking for is something like this ;
But how can I do it with Blender?
Note : I've tried this tutorial but it seems uncompleted. Last part is not clear to me. http://johnflower.org/tutorial/make-mountains-blender-height-maps
