This is the start of adding more ”smart data” to buildings beyond just a ‘dumb’ grey building and/or textured.   CyberCity3D give roof details, heights, angles and roof type but are looking at adding for specific buildings floors and other attributes.   I thought I’d jump ahead and see what I could with that kind of information in CityEngine.

So what if you had floor levels within buildings? You could run any rule you wanted on each floor or place in a detailed floor plan. Or you could put a park on a well known building landmark and give each floor a pretty colour…..

The “Gherkin” was modelled in more detail separately (using SketchUp in this case), this specific model is not part of the CyberCIty3D dataset.


Floors Colour by Area in CityEngine pretty but also potentially useful for proerpty management companies?
