Our GD3D data service

Our GD3D data service

You will have seen recently news of our (GD3D) new data agreement with our friends at CyberCity3D.  Not only for data sales but also a data streaming service on the ArcGIS Marketplace.   This means a subscription fee for access to city datasets for use in ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Earth or ArcGIS Online, we’re calling it ‘Context as a Service’.   We’ve had so many interactions with clients who want the 3D context for a proposal site but are looking for cost effective ways to get it without paying per square kilometre large sums of money.    We’ll also be adding extensive UK coverage of our baseBuildings 3D datasets a low cost alternative to LOD2/2.5 buildings in addition to the CyberCity3D library.

I’ll write a longer post soon about it all and how it fits with our CityEngine work!  In the meantime you can read our ‘press release’ here.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Warm wishes to all our readers out there! 2017 was a bit of a challenging year for many reasons, but with a new year ahead of us and big plans in the works 2018 should be interesting at least!

On the horizon finally, a proper launch of GD3D not just a 3D data service on the ArcGIS Marketplace but also a seller of the occasional rule files for CityEngine and ArcGISPro use (the craftsman style is coming!), please stay tuned or sign up for updates here.
