Data specialists have created a map with 3D models of buildings

City centre of Brno in 3D even without a cinema. Such a spectacle is made possible by a new function on Brno’s website called Buildings of Brno, which was created by our data specialists. It allows users to see a three-dimensional view of different floors and parts of buildings in the historic city centre, as well as their changes over time. In addition, the map shows the area of the building or its floors occupied by various facilities.

Data specialists have created a map with 3D models of buildings

What can the new 3D map do?

The 3D map allows you to display up to 14 categories of buildings divided according to their purposes, such as housing, commerce, sports, recreation or gardens. It can be easily searched by address. Users can change the types of background map or enable shadows to be displayed based on current time. They can view information about multiple buildings at once, using the shift key. Even in a 3D model, buildings can be distinguished by their purposes, or even by floors as in the previous 2D applications.

Beyond the city centre

In two years, information was collected on approximately 110,000 buildings, from which our data specialists calculated gross floor areas, roof type and height using spatial and statistical analyses. So far, they have modelled the historical centre of Brno as part of the 3D solution, and they are now working intensively to extend the map to the outskirts. The pilot 3D map project was presented for the first time in October at an exhibition called “381,346 Spatial Planners” in the Brno’s Urban Centre. Based on the feedback from its users, they want to continuously update the map.
