Smart City Model as Open Data

BLC recently made available a 3D city model of the German capital as open data, which the public can download for free. Users can explore this realistic model of the city online, or use it offline. To create the model, around 550,000 buildings covering 890 km² of urban space were photographed from the air and measured. The city model’s 3D building data is now available through a web-based service portal as part of the State of Berlin’s open data initiative. The Open Data Model allows users to obtain the original CityGML data for either the entire city model or portions of it and to use it for their own purposes. Discover for yourself why the smart city Berlin is the perfect location through the 3D city model.
