Product features

There are four Levels of Detail (LOD) of Advanced City Models:
LOD1: ‘Shoebox’ model: basic, un-textured 3D model without roofs or superstructures. This model is aimed at supporting the lowest specification hardware platforms.
LOD2: Detailed 3D block models including roofs, large superstructures and small superstructures (e.g. elevator shafts)
LOD3: The LOD2 detailed block models with the addition of texture utilizing a window and door library. The manageable size of the texture library makes it very easy to customize the look and feel of the data.
LOD4: Photo-realistic textured 3D models including corresponding ortho images (ground images)
