The following demos show street models for different cities including the area around TU Munich, Grafing, Tokyo, New York City and Melbourne.

The 3DCityDB Web-Map-Client is a web based front-end for 3D visualization and interactive exploration of semantic 3D city models.

Find below some examples for different city / street space models. Click on a specific link to be redirected. (Google Chrome-Webbrowser recommended)


Sonnenstrasse Nord

The city of Munich is currently gathering data on the streetspace with lane-level accuracy. Test data of this "Lane Model" is available for the northern part of the "Sonnenstrasse" in the center of Munich. This data is converted to CityGML and then visualized using the 3DCityDB Cesium Web-Map-Client.

Frankfurter Ring

Link: 3D City Model of Hamburg - Including Roads, Bridge surfaces, Buildings, CityFurniture, Markings, Vegetation and the terrain

This demo was created from data provided by the Landesbetrieb Geoinformation und Vermessung (LGV) Hamburg. This includes OpenDRIVE data, which was converted to CityGML using the open source tool rtron.  Additionally, this demo contains 3D models of buildings, bridge surfaces, vegetation and a terrain model, which are available as open data.

The original OpenDRIVE data was created in the course of the project TAVF using the Train3DBuilder and kindly provided by the LGV.

Including diving lanes, crosswalks, bike lanes, sidewalks, markings, vegetation and city furniture (traffic signs, traffic lights, lanterns, etc.).

The original OpenDRIVE data was produced by 3D Mapping Solutions GmbH

The traffic sign models were provided by Software-Service John GmbH | VIS-All® 3D

Due to the large number of individual objects in this demo, the web-client might take a moment to load. The Google Chrome web browser is recommended to view this visualization.

Each TrafficArea contains information on function, area in square meter and the IDs of the corresponding OpenDRIVE referenceline (for driving lanes). This includes TrafficAreas with multiple functions such as driving lane, crosswalk or bike lane. Each TrafficArea can belong to multiple OpenDRIVE referencelines. Note that geometries do not overlap (non-redundant).

The image below shows a query of all TrafficAreas beloning to an OpenDRIVE referencline with id = 3124035 (highlighted in yellow).

Numazu (Japan)

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) of Japan runs a project called PLATEAU. Within this project, a street in the city of Numazu containing several sections and intersections was modelled in LoD3. This includes individual driving lanes, sidewalks, green areas, markings, city furniture objects and LoD3 buildings. The models are structured according to the international OGC standard CityGML.

The following Web Client was created using the 3DCityDB. More information on how to transfer the CityGML data provided in the PLATEAU project to interactive visualizations can be found here.

Due to the large amount of data a good internet connection is required. In case the web client is not loading properly try to de-select the LoD3 Buildings layer.

Munich - tum2twin LOD3 models

The goal of the project tum2twin is to contribute to a collection of different representations of the TUM campus and its surroundings to promote research and development of new methods.

The following demo contains LOD3 Buidling models created from LOD2 Building models and point clouds using the Sketchup CityEditor. A corresponding Road model was created using the software RoadRunner.
All models are provided as open data in the CityGML format and were converted to 3DTiles using Cesium Ion.

This Web-Client was created using CityGML data provided by the city of Tokyo (Project PLATEAU).

Link: Center of Tokyo - Results of a Solar Potential Simulation

The solar potential simulation was conducted for a area in central Tokyo. Each Building contains information on direct, diffuse and global irradiation values in [kwh/m2], as well as a Sky View Factor (SVF). The simulation was done using a tool developed at the TUM Cair of Geoinformatics. Some OuterCeilingSurfaces were disregarded on purpose.
