3D models for European Cities

Tele Atlas has already announced that they have launched the photorealistic buildings and blocks created by Blom, as part of their navigation solutions. Their solution, named Advanced City Models, will enhance the user-experience of any navigator integrating the solution.

Blom has produced 3D models on contract basis for our customers for several years. The first 40 Blom3Ds are signifying a milestone for Blom as they have been able to industrialise the production process.

Blom3D is produced in four different definition levels; 3D blocks, 3D blocks including roof details, pattern-texturized 3D blocks with roof details and full real image-view texturised 3D buildings. The real image view texturized buildings are created by combining oblique aerial images based on Pictometry technology with the 3D blocks. Blom3D provides threedimensional representations of major city centres, including buildings and city blocks.

The Advanced City Models by Tele Atlas are designed for use in navigation systems and location-based applications. Advanced City Models dramatically improve the clarity and reality of screen images within in-car and portable navigation systems and mobile devices. With the 3D models users are able to see the actual surroundings, helping them more easily find locations and points of interest.

By the end of the third quarter 2009 Blom3D models of 100 cities throughout Europe and North America will be completed. Blom3D will be available for online streaming through Blom’s geo server BlomURBEX. In addition to Tele Atlas’ focus on navigation, location based services and internet portals, Blom3D are useful in a number of industries and applications such as government and municipalities for rural and urban planning, security services, geo-referenced search and emergency services.

Blom has established a production process for high quality, detailed Blom3D models allowing for production of five to ten cities a week. This is a record-high speed, considering the quality and detail level of the models, and it demonstrates Blom’s ability to establish itself as market leader within this industry.
