We add more areas, data or consents to cities on a weekly basis. Users are prompted to download updates when logging into the platform. When we release a new version of the platform users will be prompted to download this from the user dashboard.

Currently you will need to speak to the sales team on 020 3889 7030 or to add additional licences, we are working to provide this via our online portal shortly.

How can I download Geometry from VU.CITY?2019-06-03T16:26:20+01:00

All of the areas in the platform can be downloaded in .dwg format. We have split each city into a grid of 250m x 250m squares and you will shortly be able to select these from within the platform. Until then please contact sales on and they will be able to provide you access to the required geometry.

We include two areas of 250m x 250m as part of your annual licence, additional areas are available at a reduce cost of £100 per 250m x 250m. Using VU.CITY greatly reduces the requirement to purchase additional geometry so we limit the amount you can purchase to 1sq km.

What machine do I need to run VU.CITY?2019-06-03T17:21:13+01:00

The platform will run on most modern PC’s, those with dedicated graphics cards will provide the best and most performant user experience. Please read our knowledge base for specifications.

Yes, nobody else will see your scheme unless you share it with them, allowing you to collaborate with other VU.CITY Licence holders online. You can also save projects, ensuring you can pick up where you left off when you log back into the platform.
