Slide background


CityBuilder merges 3D PhotoMesh city models together with classification layers, individually modeled layers, and BIM datasets, into a stream-optimized, fully textured, and geospatially-enabled mesh layer (3DML). Generated 3DMLs can be made available to local TerraExplorer clients or published to remote clients (using the SkylineGlobe 3D service)

Merge and Optimize City Model

Unified and efficient 3D mesh layer

> Merges any number of mesh models with BIM and other model data sets
> Reprojects layers that use different coordinate systems
> Generates fully textured model
> Optimizes models for desktop, web, and mobile use

Geospatially Enabled Mesh Models

Transform PhotoMesh mesh models into powerful geospatial data

> Fully enable spatial operations and attribute queries by merging PhotoMesh-generated mesh models with classification information such as building footprints

> Generated 3DML layers are integrated seamlessly in TerraExplorer's terrain, and can be measured, analyzed, and queried using TerraExplorer’s advanced capabilities

Individually Referenced Models

CityBuilder stream-optimizes entire city layers, modeled either manually or semi-automatically

> Integrates point feature layers that reference individual models of complete cities
> Optimizes model layers for viewing and streaming on desktop and mobile applications

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

BIM layers provide crucial support for the entire building life cycle

> Reads FBX format, the industry standard for BIM data
> Converts BIM from FBX to 3DML format that can be viewed and analyzed in its geographical context using TerraExplorer, while preserving all geometry and attribute data
> Stream-optimizes BIM data
> Supports spatial and attribute queries

Rich Editing Environment

Efficient model creation process

> Support for multi-threading allows full utilization of computer resources
> Easily search SkylineGlobe Server for required data
> Immediate preview of created 3DMLs from CityBuilder’s 3D View

Efficient Data Management

Manage and share enterprise information across your organization.

> Find up to date model data by querying SkylineGlobe Server
> Upload 3DMLs to the SkylineGlobe 3D service directly from CityBuilder
