Building Footprint Posters based on a 3D map

After I posted a link to a previous article about making Building Footprint Posters in QGIS on LinkedIn , I got a question about how to make these kind of Building Footprint Posters based on building heights. In Flanders we’re lucky enough to not have to create this kind of data ourselfs based on DTM and DSM map layers. The Agentschap Informatie Vlaanderen distributes the 3D GRB (a 3D base map of Flanders), that has that information per building.

At the same time christmas trees are added to the map at random locations inside the bounding box of your points layer. Everytime you interact with the map the trees change location. For each point in your layer, 3 trees are shown on the map.
