As the first city in the world to do so, Helsinki has simultaneously introduced two 3D city models covering the entire city: a smart semantic city information model and visually high-standard reality mesh model. The models are being released as open data.
The City of Helsinki launched a EUR 1 million project to produce a 3D representation of the city to improve Helsinki’s internal services and processes, promote smart city development, and share city models as open data to citizens and companies for research and development. As part of this three-year Helsinki 3D+ initiative, the project team will deliver a pilot portfolio to demonstrate the power of new modeling technology and promote its use in higher education.
