About Level 2 3D Models of London

Latest Source Aerial Imagery

The Level 2 Medium Detail 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 September 2016. This gives the user the confidence that the most recent additions to the London skyline are included in the 3D model.

Accurately Captured Buildings

The Level 2 3D Model is accurate to 50 cm in all axis. All roofs features and structures are manually captured with correct shapes and slopes of all main roof features. The 3D Buildings models are light & low poly and displaying of the entire dataset is possible on standard PCs. Vertical walls of buildings in our Level 2 3D models are made as downwards extensions of roof structures. If more detail or accuracy is required, please see our Level 3 Models.

Accurately Captured Terrain

The terrain in the Level 2 3D Model of London is not flat. It is manually captured using the same manual photogrammetry method as buildings and is accurate to 20cm in all axis at curb level.

Terrain is separated into land use categories such as roads, man-made surfaces, greenspaces and water body. 

3D data structured in Layers

3D Models of London in Level 2 are structured in Layers. Level 2 Buildings are on one layer, terrain model is separated in layers such as Roads, Man-made surfaces, Greenspaces and Water body, but also Bridges, Embankment Walls and River Structures. Last layer in this dataset is the Trees layer.

Variety of File formats

Level 2 3D models are delivered in AutoCad Solid DWG, SketchUp SKP and Filmbox FBX formats for easy editing that suits most workflows. The 3D Model is easy to import into Revit, 3D Studio Max, Maya or Cinema 4D. 

Company-wide Multi-use Licence

We put as few restrictions on how you can use our 3D models as possible. Our End User Licence Agreement is easy to understand and allows anybody in your company to use the data over and over again for 5 full years.

0.25 km2 Tile: £250 + VAT
1 km2 Model (4 Tiles): £1,000 + VAT

Easy to Use and Upgrade

The files are structured in 500 x 500m (0.25 kmOS 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.

3D Print ready

The Level 2 3D Model is made with 3D printing in mind. Files are easy to print using most office and professional 3D Printers. Because the 3D Model is structured in tiles, you can easily build larger models using printers with smaller build volume. 

Custom Level 2 3D Models

Level 2 Custom 3D Models of London can be produced for sites anywhere withing M25. Ideal for areas outside of Central London or for Central London areas which fall between tiles. Rapidly captured to order from 2016 High-Res imagery, Custom Level 2 models are accurate to 50 cm in all axis.
