Helsingin Sanomat published 3D cave models!


The main newspaper in Finland, Helsingin Sanomat, published a story from visiting three caves in the Helsinki region with Harri-Pekka Pietikäinen, the author of a recent caving book.

It was a great article, and I'm very glad to see attention to the book! But it was also interesting that the newspaper journalists' decided to go even beyond the otherwise interesting article and include 3D cave models in the article. On the web version the user can navigate the models of the Torhola cave in Lohja, Grottberget cave in Siuntio, and the Högberget cave in Kirkkonummi. The models are my models, I was happy to provide the newspaper this material!

The article is available here (requires subscription, but free two-week trial subscriptions are available). The models are also stylized nicely and labeled with few key cave parts. Well done!

The original models are aren't labelled with cave parts, but are available in the Planetskier web page. They are also in a form that allows flying through the cave and rotating it on your browser screen:
