Australia, September 18, 2014: Virtual Australia & New Zealand Infrastructure (VANZI) and volunteer group Code for Australia have agreed to develop the first prototype for modelling Australian cities and towns in 3D.

The modelling exercise would include buildings, roads, railway and power lines, and water pipes of the cities.

Under the project, Code for Australia (CA) will link 3D models of buildings and infrastructure to a cadastre, which is data on property boundaries.

Information on legal and legislation rights of each property asset will be attached to the 3D model so that the different parties do not have to do the time-intensive task of sourcing all this information. This includes convenants, leases, body corporate areas, easements, and rights of way.

Michael Haines, CEO of VANZI said “Where someone has a right or no right to access a particular part of a property, it will be visually represented in the 3D model so that it's easy to understand and stays intuitive.”
