RhinoCity

Produce, edit,
analyze and
texture 3D data




Featuring a unique building modeler and extensive automatic texturing capabilities, RhinoCity™ is the ideal tool to produce high quality, textured 3D data that can be used directly in CityGML format.

automatic 3D modeling
 
RhinoCity™ produces exact 3D models using a unique and innovative boolean extrusion engine.

By combining geometry (3D polygons)  and semantic information, the RhinoCity™ 3D modeler automatically produces a 3D model whose accurancy is the guarantee of :
  • Exact wall, roofs and footprints surfaces
  • A 3D model composed of watertight volumes
  • Optimized 3D data good for 3D analysis and studies : solar, wave propagation, noise, wind...

CityGML is an official international standard of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

It is both a data model and an interchange format for storing digital 3D models of urban environments.

It defines different levels of details (LOD). These allow the use of different representations of 3D objects according to their uses, from vizualization to simulation (energy, mobility, housing, services...).

CityGML : IMPORT

RhinoCity™ can import  any file in CityGML format  : it is compatible with 100% of the  specifications of the format.

In particular, it can import and render textured 3D models.

Including a complete GIS core, it also ensures perfect mangement of the attribute values attached to the objects of the imported 3D model.

CityGML : CREATE, TEXTURE, EXPORT

RhinoCity™ allos you to :
  • Create a 3D model at LOD2 or LOD3 Level Of Detail using an unique and innovating automatic 3D modeler
  • Texturing you 3D model automatically using vertical and/or oblique aerial images.
  • Export your textured 3D model in CityGML format.

CityGML : USE IT

The development of the OpenData gives free access to more and more urban models in CityGML format.

RhinoCity™ allows you to import this data and imagine all possible uses !
 
Example : excerpt from the CityGML 3D model from Berlin (DE) imported using RhinoCity™ and then re-exported in FBX format to be exploitable in a game engine.

analysis and editing of 3D geometries

The quality of 3D data useful for modeling is a decisive factor in the accurancy of the 3D models that will be produced.
To garantee this quality and ensure that the 3D models that will result, RhinoCity™ includes all the tools needed to control and edit your 3D data.

Here are some non-exhaustive examples of the multiple commands available :
Detect unclosed polygons
Detect self-crossing polygons
Detect vertical polygons
Control and unify direction
Dissolve polygons
XYZ Snap
Detect vertical segments
Remove duplicated points
Detect duplicated polygons
Divide 3D polygons
Snap polygons
Control and edit coplanarity

AUTOMATIC TEXTURING
 
RhinoCity™ allows automatic texturing of your 3D models in just a few clicks !

Oriented images taken from vertical and/or oblique aerial shots are processed fully automatically to extract the textures necessary for the perfect rendering of 3D models.

3D Tiles is an open specification designed for streaming heterogenous 3D geospatial content.

Submitted to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) by a team led by Cesium, the OGC has approved the 3D Tiles Specification 1.0 for adoption as Community Standard.

RhinoCity™ allows the 3D Tiles export of your 3D textured data !

The 3D models produced are exportable to in this new format, exploiting these most advanced features :


Draco is an OpenSOurce extension developed by Google to compress and decompress 3D meshes.

Compression of vertices, normals, colors and texture coordinates dramtically improve the speed of transmitting 3D content on the Web.


The glTF is the result ot the Khronos Group consortium that already initiated the specifications of Collada, Vulkan et OpenGL.

Sometimes presented as the "3D JPEGglTF can minimize the size of 3D scenes described and therefore minimize the time of loading and rendering, espacially on the Web.


A complete GIS core : definition of feature classes, attribute creation and editing.
 


Full compatibility with the SHP format with many tools dedicated to management of data at ESRI  formats (inputs and outputs)


Several import/export capacities : CityGML, PostgreSQL, 3DCityDB, Shapefiles, GeoDatabase
