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.
