★★★★★ Foggo Associates

We recently purchased a large 3D model for a project in an area of North London which has seen a lot of recent development. We made enquiries at what had been our usual 3D mapping provider but their model was missing several recent developments. The people at AccuCities went out of their way to provide a more up to date model which even included buildings modelled from planning information. Very pleased with the service which was fast and very competitively priced. We will certainly be speaking to them again for the next project. Thanks AccuCities!

We recently collaborated with the good people of AccuCities to assist us in delivering a compelling video content 3D animation. This became a fast forward fly-through experience looking at the future skyline of London in the year 2030. My client was looking to build video content for their new website homepage launch and AccuCities provides us with the assets of this accurate virtual experience of the London skyline. We highly recommend AccuCities and would collaborate with them again.
