Under the hood

Sketching graphics in 3D

Interactive sketch tools allow users to draw geometries in a scene. Polygons can then be extruded by real world heights to represent buildings.

Realistic web style symbols

Ready to use collections of 3D symbols help users equip their plan with realistic vegetation, vehicles and park furniture.

glTF import

The glTF capabilities of the API make it possible to place arbitrary 3D models in the scene.

Custom vector basemap

Drawing parks, streets, water and beaches on the ground is possible using a simple basemap with very few colors.
