CyberCity 3D Launches City Modeling Services Using Satellite Imagery

Share Article

CyberCity 3D, Inc. today announced plans to produce 3D buildings from stereo satellite imagery, becoming the first company known to do so on a commercial scale. CyberCity 3D, a cutting-edge, web technology company headquartered in El Segundo, CA, enters the satellite imagery arena with seven years experience constructing 3D buildings from aerial imagery. The Company's proprietary CC modeler software enables CyberCity 3D to transform satellite imagery into 3D.

The ability to use satellite data allows CyberCity 3D to continue to employ our core technology to build low cost, highly detailed models throughout the entire world.

Need a model of Cabo San Lucas? How about Barbados? Seychelles? In a groundbreaking move, CyberCity 3D, Inc. (http://www.cybercity3d.com) today announced plans to produce 3D buildings from stereo satellite imagery, becoming the first company known to do so on a commercial scale.

CyberCity 3D, a cutting-edge, web technology company headquartered in El Segundo, CA, enters the satellite imagery arena with seven years experience constructing 3D buildings from aerial imagery. CyberCity 3D's proprietary CC modeler software enables the Company to transform satellite imagery into 3D.

The expansion into satellite imagery is a welcome one for the Company, which prides itself in its 'first mover' position in 3D web applications as well as working as one of Google™ Earth and Maps leading content providers.

"The ability to use satellite data allows CyberCity 3D to continue to employ our core technology to build low cost, highly detailed models throughout the entire world and gives us the opportunity to provide unique, 3D modeling services to an even broader market," stated Andy Yang, CyberCity 3D Production Manager.

Dulles, VA-based GeoEye, Inc. (http://www.geoeye.com), a premier provider of superior satellite and aerial-based geospatial information and services, provided CyberCity 3D a few sample stereo satellite images to produce sample 3D building models. GeoEye's high-resolution IKONOS and GeoEye-1 satellites have the ability to generate three-dimensional, map-accurate images from stereo data collected during a single orbital pass.

The 3D buildings created by CyberCity 3D from satellite imagery can be utilized for a vast variety of applications including 3D navigation platforms, GeoWeb, military, on-line and video games, iPads, mobile devices, flight simulation, and local/federal government planning.

CyberCity 3D has the ability to build 3D areas ranging from a neighborhood to a metropolis. The Company's data is compatible with applications ranging from Google™ Earth and Maps to mobile devices.
