The CityGML standard is now playing an important role in structured 3d data exchange.

CityGML provides much more than 3D content for visualization! It allows users to share a textured virtual 3D city with attributes in a very robust way.

3D models are more than only visualization media; it is a wonderful added value investment for technical process/analyses.

It opens the door for sophisticated analysis and display tasks in application domains such as environmental simulations, energy demand estimations, city lifecycle management, urban facility management, real estate appraisal, disaster management, pedestrian navigation, robotics, urban data mining, and location based marketing.

RhinoCity is an industrial plugin for Rhinoceros 5.0 for high quality CityGML.

RhinoCity provides all the necessary tools and workflow to create 3d City models from photogrammetric aerial images. The buildings and terrain are automatically created, textured and annotated with attributes. RhinoCity exports the 3d model using the CityGML standard.

This workflow has been successfully used, by a significant number of major international municipalities like Montreal, Monaco, Geneva, Lyon and Strasbourg… Over one million buildings were created and textured.

At the end of the presentation a quick introduction of RhinoCapture will be made. This new coming plugin will close the loop and open the professional photogrammetry to everyone! RhinoCapture, is using the ultra robust DAT/EM Systems International (www.datem.com) core technologies, and is fully dedicated to photogrammetric building and terrain 3D capturing. Let’s bring Rhino into the data producer technologies industry!
