On Monday, we released a demo of the City of Cambridge with 20,000 buildings. Today, we're excited to release a demo of Washington, DC with 135,000 structures:


Dupont Circle.

This demo uses several datasets:

  • Over 135,000 measurement-quality structures with rooftops from CyberCity 3D.
  • Zoning, traffic cameras, and metro lines open-data layers from DC.Gov.
  • Base layer map with roads and labels from Bing Maps.

Buildings stream in on-demand based on the view, and are individually selectable.

Some of my favorite views include:


The Metro Red Line at Union Station.


Library of Congress.


Nationals Park.

We'll release more demos in the upcoming weeks.

Share your thoughts in the 3D buildings discussion on the Cesium forum.
