quick integration

Save time, today and tomorrow   

A photorealistic 3D model of your area of interest can be rapidly created and be reused, adapted and extended for various development needs.

The perfect tool for your internal development or local planning revision.

better decisions

Improve decision-making

Add your own data, designs, and construction templates to your municipality’s 3D model and visualize planned development projects in your neighborhood.

Test different project variations and find out how they would impact your community.

This will help you make more informed decisions that ensure better results and a higher satisfaction among your residents.

How 3D models improve and speed-up building permit cases

2D maps and plans

The lack of the third dimension in 2D maps and plans makes them less useful as evidence in building objections, as they fail to properly visualize the spatial impact of the building in its surroundings.

Photo renderings

Traditional building objections to prove for example a project’s impact on a lake view, or the perception of the volumetric impact on a neighborhood are still very costly.

Abstract 3D models

Models provided by public open data from the municipality do not give a good understanding of the building’s impact to its surroundings.

story poles around a building

Story poles

Using story poles to predict the volumetric impact of a building requires physical construction on site, which is time-consuming, costly, and difficult to interpret.

Use case : the Municipality of Fällanden

The Swiss municipality of Fällanden (ZH) leveraged 3D models for their communal development project to offer their population an interactive visualization of the newly planned buildings. Thanks to the resulting clarity, they have achieved a faster and more participatory decision-making process.
