I’ve been looking forward to this dataset for a while, it’s my home town and it’s been the first production under the new CyberCity3D and Bluesky International agreement.

CyberCity 3D, a leading provider of advanced geospatial smart building data, has teamed with UK-based aerial mapping company Bluesky to create smart 3D city models throughout the UK. The Company also plans to integrate Bluesky’s National Tree Map into 3D Esri CityEngine scenes it creates with Esri UK and Cumbria, England-based Garsdale Design.

What this potentially means is small areas can now get 3D models much easier you don’t have to go and source your own stereo imagery in England now.  I won’t say it’s cheap but it is cost effective at least!



Did I say that CityEngine 2014 is now live too?  I’m in heaven this week….
