News: Agency9 offers global 3D cities derived from DigitalGlobe high-resolution satellite imagery

CityPlanner extends reach with any 3D city delivered within weeks  

Intergeo – Berlin, Germany September 2017

Agency9, with its mission to make 3D visualisation simple and accessible for urban development, is announcing the capacity to deliver textured 3D cities anywhere in the world in CityPlanner, its subscription based 3D web software.

The addition of this global premium data is realised through a partnership with DigitalGlobe. 3D cities are created using DigitalGlobe’s industry-leading global database of satellite imagery, containing more than 100 petabytes of data collected over the past 17 years. By means of this program, any city in the world can be made available in CityPlanner within a few weeks.

“Agency9 already serves many customers with web-based 3D visualisation in CityPlanner, facilitating collaboration and citizen participation based on communicative principles. With this release of 3D cities in CityPlanner — enabled by DigitalGlobe imagery — any municipality in the world can easily begin their transition to 3D urban development.”

 “3D cities derived from satellite data have great potential. The quality is already good and will undoubtedly continue to improve. It enables any city to rapidly get started, before updating and combining their efforts with high-resolution 3D data.”

 Håkan Engman, CEO of Agency9 AB

CityPlanner represents a new generation of 3D tools for urban planning.
