CyberCity 3D, a geospatial modeling and mapping company, streams 3D buildings for GIS. The company creates high resolution building models using its patented 3D modeling process. These “smart” models come with measurement data such as height, roof slope, etc., with up to 6-inch accuracy, making them valuable tools for a variety of geospatial analysis applications.

CyberCity 3D boasts the world’s largest building library of its kind, with more than 1,500 km^2 of coverage area and more than 1.5 million buildings. Applications for this 3D data range from government and private project planning to flood risk mitigation.

CyberCity 3D’s buildings are compatible with major 3D applications, including Cesium, Autodesk Infraworks, Esri platforms, and Google Earth. The company’s browser-based mapping solutions work in all environments, including mobile.

In Cesium, CyberCity’s 3D models work interactively. Buildings, streamed on-demand, are based on the view and can be combined with satellite imagery, terrain, and vector data. Users can highlight individual buildings and click on them to obtain metadata. CyberCity 3D has launched streaming cities with Cesium including Washington, DC; Miami-Dade County, Fl; Cambridge, MA; Fayetteville, NC; and Honolulu, HI.

Customers can order off-the-shelf models as well as custom new buildings through CyberCity 3D’s SaaS, which streams complete city datasets into Cesium. These models can be exported into most file types, including .dae, .kml, .gdb, .shp, .skp, .mdb, .obj, .dxf, and .flt. For streaming in Cesium, exported Collada models are converted into glTF. Buildings are then streamed using 3D Tiles, and vector data is delivered as GeoJSON.

You can see samples of 3D CyberCity buildings at work with Cesium from Washington, D.C., to Miami to Honolulu.
