Discover how CyberCity 3D harnesses revolutionary 3D modeling technology to transform the way businesses bring smart city technology to the world to drive economic growth for our future.

 
 
 
 

3D mapping is an incredibly effective tool  to “show and tell” the story of proposed city developments due to its visual and interactive nature. The maps have a unique way of capturing and communicating how proposed changes affect current cityscapes spatially, economically, and environmentally.

CyberCity 3D is at the forefront of this brave new world of smart city 3D geolocation platforms. Companies including Google, Apple, Amazon, Uber, and Facebook have proprietary mapping and related infrastructure; they are either already utilizing it or will be moving to it in coming years. CyberCity 3D is a first mover in this game-changing way of seeing the world.

The Smart Cities Market will be worth $1,134.84 Billion by 2019.

At the same time, major desktop-based 3D mapping providers are shifting to more consumer-facing models, and others like Google Earth are retiring their APIs to focus on maps and Android. As a result, many businesses which once relied on those solutions will effectively be left out in the cold, without a platform to host their 3D building data.

That’s where CyberCity 3D comes in. Our visually stunning, cloud-based 3D mapping technology offers businesses the most affordable, accurate, and highest-quality solution available.

 
 
 
 

With CyberCity 3D’s streaming map services, everything operates within the cloud, meaning no expensive software licensing or training is needed. Here’s a look at how CyberCity 3D provides the highest resolution and lightweight 3D building information files on the market.

Optimized performance on the web and industry-leading visual quality.

Miami Downtown Development Authority (MDDA)
Urban cities are going vertical. The Miami downtown skyline is at the center of this global trend.The MDDA harnessed our mapping technology to promote economic growth and development across the city, providing detailed information for each pipeline project. Over one million of its citizens and stakeholders accessed the MDDA website the first week it went up, nearly crashing the system!

City of Cambridge, MA GIS and Community Development
The City of Cambridge, home to both Harvard and MIT, is the clear front-runner in the use of state and local government communities using CyberCity 3D streaming 3D maps. With every conceivable urban design and planning software product being peer reviewed and scrutinized, the city and its prestigious university chose CyberCity 3D for its mapping and 3D planning future.

Downtown Sacramento Partnership (DSP)
CC3D generated a Streaming 3D Map of Sacramento’s downtown district. The DSP wanted a 3D map to take on its tours around town with potential investors as well as  include it on its website to attract public interest and provide information on new development.

State of Hawaii
The State of Hawaii ordered over 30 square kilometers of Honolulu to be modeled for public use. Several local organizations now leverage this high resolution 3D data in their solutions, including a Hawaiian construction company and an online marketing tourism firm. Uses include textured 3D building models, visualization of hotel units, and neighborhood-based analysis.

 
 
 
 

CyberCity 3D is taking geographic information systems (GIS) to the next level. Our patent pending photogrammetric software generates 3D building information automatically as individual files, enabling clients to literally measure a wide variety of information that includes roof data, height data, volume, and more. And best of all, our models are up to six-inches accurate– delivering both top quality engineering and visualization. It’s perfectly suited for 3D visualization information systems.

Here’s an inside look at our how our proprietary software works:

Step 1: Stereo Imagery
The workflow begins with two overlapping aerial images called stereo pairs. This imagery is the starting point for our proprietary 3D modeling process.

Step 2: Data Extraction
Once we’ve acquired the stereo pairs, we extract the building features and create point clouds which provide the source data for our automatically generated CC-Modeler software process.

Step 3: Automated Modeling
With the building point clouds, we create the CyberCity 3D models. Our patent pending process is the core of our technology.

Step 4: Editing and Output
After the models are generated, they are reviewed and edited for quality control and then cut by terrain. Our native software can be converted into most commercial formats.

 
 
 
 

CyberCity 3D empowers customers by offering multiple ways to put the spotlight on their plans and proposals with our smart 3D buildings. We provide applications across a wide variety of different sectors, including:

Smart City Maps & Dashboards
Smart city deployments are fueling global economies and improving the way we live and interact. Maps and dashboards are critical to organizing and distributing this information. From deployment of smart city LED lights to monitoring energy benchmarks from every single building in a city, CyberCity 3D maps and dashboards will become essential tools for this enormous market.

AEC Project Management
Show the suitability of projects in relation to the existing cityscape with our state-of-the-art 3D building models. Visualizations are artfully presented in the surrounding environment. Construction management and tracking benefit greatly from 3D maps and dashboards.
