The Base 3D Model is manually captured using stereo photogrammetry. The source photography and its associated data is from the latest high-res 12.5cm GSD imagery collected in August 2016. This gives the user the confidence that the most recent additions to the London skyline are included in the 3D model.

Accurate Buildings

The Base 3D Model is accurate to 90cm in all axes. Main features of roofs and structures are manually captured with correct shapes and slopes. The 3D Building models are low poly and displaying the entire dataset is possible on standard PCs. If more detail and/or accuracy is needed, customers can purchase Medium Level 2 and High Detail Level 3 models at a 10% discount.

Easy to Use and Upgrade

The files are structured in 500 x 500m (0.25 km2) OS Tiles, allowing for easy editing of the areas you would like to work on without loading the entire model. It also allows for easy replacement of an area with higher detail/higher accuracy models, whether bought from us or from your measured survey.
