US: SmarterBetterCities has released the latest version of CloudCities, the premier platform for hosting, sharing and visualizing your smart 3D city models. The updated version fully supports Esri CityEngine, Google Earth, and SketchUp, enabling organizations worldwide to create efficiently and publish their 3D models across multiple platforms.
CloudCities now supports ground-breaking real-time 3D streaming meaning, no more loading bars or loading tiles. 3D web scenes appear instantly, and buildings start popping up immediately, building by building. And with the new support for various VR headsets such as Google Cardboard you just open up a scene on your phone and push the VR icon to immerse yourself in the 3D CloudCities world.
“We are thrilled to share our latest development and design efforts with our users. Our goal to make 3D model sharing easy and fast has taken a big leap forward with this release. We think you will enjoy using it while also bringing powerful collaboration to your design projects.” Dr. Michael Van Den Bergh, CTO SmarterBetterCities.
Enhanced user experience is another major focus of the CloudCities release. The menus and tools are now easier to access and fit in with a user’s workflow. New tools make adding models, creating scenes more streamlined while also adding more functionality. Attribute editing is now available via a spreadsheet-style editor to populate dashboards or search attributes so adjustments can be made on-the-fly.
“I’m very excited. I think CloudCities will be a game changer for the AEC and GIS industry!” Nick Meyers, GIS Project Manager at Bolton & Menk, Minnesota.
