As the long-awaited city models of Cardiff, Bristol and Dublin will be released over the next few days, AccuCities is releasing a teaser selection of free city model samples of these cities. They can be download from our Store alongside our 3D London sample. Whilst Cardiff and Bristol samples represent 0.2 km2 sections, Dublin sample covers an entire 0.25 km2 tile.

Driving Innovation pays off

“AccuCities have always offered generously sized sample models for free,” says Michal Konicek, AccuCities Director. “Our London sample has been downloaded almost 3,000 times and we really see how the availability of this models drove research and innovation in our industry. I really hope that releasing samples of additional cities will lead to even more cool s**t created by enthusiasts, students and researchers all over the world. Since day one this approach paid off – the small percentage of projects that do move to commercial stage more than justify the effort. We grow when users of our data have the opportunity to be awesome.”
