Map Description:

"Any way you slice it.....I'm exaggerating" is a sliceform depicting New Jersey's elevation. Points were taken from our DEM, turned into XYZ coordinates, exaggerated in excel, imported into sketchup via a point cloud (csv format), turned into a 3d model, sliced via the SliceModeler plugin, laid flat, printed, and finally cut out by hand and mounted on foam core. The result is a nifty cardboard depiction of our state's varied terrain.
