Imporant note : This model is ultra simplified : Each annotation contains a link to the hi resolution version of each chateau extracted from the un-simplified model

This model covers an area of 24 square kilometers (6x4 km). It includes some of the most famous “chateaux” of the south west of France : Beynac, Castelnaud, Milandes, the beautiful gardens of Marqueyssac, and finally the less renowned Fayrac, and Monrecour.
This model is an oportunity to see them all together, in this beautiful part of the Dordogne valley.
Technical information : 2500 photos, 36Mpx each, total of 90Gpx. The poly count of the full optimized model is 120 Million. I downsampled the photos, and decimated the model several times to reach this 1.1M poly count. The textures have been severely reduced too, to avoid browser crash during readout.. Of course, some places have become rather rough but I tried to keep the chateaux at a decent resolution.
