US: SmarterBetterCities has announced the release of its web-based 3D data mashup and advanced editing capabilities, CloudCities. The new CloudCities is now available at www.cloudcities.io.

CloudCities is an online platform for visualizing, editing, and publishing interactive 3D city models. It dramatically simplifies creating 3D plans and combining data with it.

The new version will allow users to take full control over their 3D content by adding, moving and transforming 3D assets.

CloudCities now supports even more available input formats for adding 3D content. Data attributes linked to the 3D objects can be managed directly with the all-new spreadsheet-style attribute editor.

Introducing the CloudCities 3D Editor

The new 3D Editor makes the 3D content creation process a lot easier. Multiple files and 3D assets can be added to the scene directly. The all-new transform tool allows moving, rotating and scaling of the objects in the scene. Objects can be moved between layers by the push of a button. Users now have full control over their 3D scenes.

Spreadsheet-style Attribute Editor

3D data mashup is revolutionized with the new attribute editor. Selected objects in the 3D scene are displayed in a spreadsheet showing all the connected data attributes. Values can be mass-edited as one would be accustomed to in any spreadsheet software. Hit save and all the data is connected to the 3D objects.

CloudCities Asset Manager

Managing your 3D content becomes even easier with the asset manager, giving a complete overview of your 3D assets. Whether they are buildings, cars, street furniture, or any other 3D assets, they are now readily accessible through the asset manager. Assets can be searched, tagged, and previewed.

Additional Format Support: COLLADA, FBX, and OBJ 

CloudCities now supports the de-facto 3D standards of the architecture, engineering, construction, and urban planning industries.

  • 3WS: Esri 3D Web Scene
  • KMZ: Google Earth
  • SKP: SketchUp
  • DAE: COLLADA
  • FBX: Autodesk FBX
  • OBJ: Wavefront Object

The new release will unite the vast user base of the leading geospatial information system (GIS) and building information modeling (BIM) applications from Autodesk, Esri, Trimble, and others.
