The DFX-tool will be the 3D Interactive Viewer of the Delft3D FM Suite. DFX can quickly load and visualise Delft3D FM output files (NetCDF). When georeferenced, a 3D world based on OpenStreetMaps data, elevation maps and aerial tiles can be used for realistic 3D visualisation of your water system. This includes urban areas with 3D buildings, trees, green roofs, water squares, and wadis.

Combining the many open datasets available today with the output of the Delft3D FM Suite can instantly result in a clear view of the impact that water contamination, a storm surge, extreme rainfall or a major river levee breach might have on inhabitants (Flood Impact Assessment Tool) and/or critical infrastructure (CIrcle).

How to get a 3D visualisation of my own Delft3D FM output?

Interested in communicating in an effective way? You only need a Delft3D FM output file (NetCDF) and a little support from us to download all data needed from internet. This includes OpenStreetMap data and aerial images, and building the 3D environment. Depending on (1) the data available, (2) the storyline and (3) the type (mp4, 360° video, HoloLens) and number of 3D animations needed, you will get 3D visualisations within 4 hours up to 5 business days.
