Geneva is the second-most populous city in Switzerland (after Zürich) and the most populous city of Romandy, the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Situated where the Rhône exits Lake Geneva, it is the capital of the Republic and Canton of Geneva.

The municipality (ville de Genève) has a population (as of December 2019) of 203,951, and the canton (essentially the city and its inner-ring suburbs) has 504,128 residents. In 2014, the compact agglomération du Grand Genève had 946,000 inhabitants in 212 communities in both Switzerland and France. Within Swiss territory, the commuter area named "Métropole lémanique" contains a population of 1.26 million. This area is essentially spread east from Geneva towards the Riviera area (VeveyMontreux) and north-east towards Yverdon-les-Bains, in the neighbouring canton of Vaud.

Geneva is a global city, a financial centre, and a worldwide centre for diplomacy due to the presence of numerous international organizations, including the headquarters of many agencies of the United Nations and the Red Cross. Geneva hosts the highest number of international organizations in the world. It is also where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war. Together with for instance New York City (global headquarters of the UN), Basel (Bank for International Settlements), and Strasbourg (Council of Europe), Geneva is a city serving as the headquarters of one of the most important international organizations, without being the capital of a country.

In 2017, Geneva was ranked as the world's fifteenth most important financial centre for competitiveness by the Global Financial Centres Index, fifth in Europe behind London, Zürich, Frankfurt and Luxembourg. In 2019, Geneva was ranked among the ten most liveable cities in the world by Mercer together with Zürich and Basel. The city has been referred to as the world's most compact metropolis and the "Peace Capital". In 2019, Mercer ranked Geneva as the thirteenth most expensive city in the world. In a UBS ranking of global cities in 2018, Geneva was ranked first for gross earnings, second most expensive, and fourth in purchasing power.

    are you going to do the Airport mate
    • Thalixte
      21 day(s) ago
      No, i am not, since photogrammetry is not suitable for the airports. You have to make specific 3d models for them, as well as PBR textures.

      Thank you, I will try it. Do you know if there is a guide somewhere on how to do it?

      Also what was the LOD bug you fixed?

      Sorry for the questions, have had trouble finding information.
    • Thalixte

      The LOD bug i fixed is unknown for most of the Google Earth Decoder users. It is only related to Google Earth Decoder sceneries made with the C# version of the tool (the one with the map). It is related to the way Google Earth Decoder places and sizes the tiles, which breaks the LOD management system. This results to an overdraw of vertices in all the directions, except one, and it tanks the fps for big sceneries.

    Very nice work and thank you for creating it. It is however a more GPU/CPU demanding mod. I had created a video showcase base on this mod.
