Our 3D Manchester Model currently spans across the city centre and has been manually captured from high-resolution aerial imagery and is accurate to within 15 cm in x, y and z-axis.
Most customers opt for Level 3 when requesting models. It displays a great level of detail as it separates the terrain by land use, including roads, water, pavements, railways, platforms, pathways, greenspace and playgrounds. LOD3 models also includes trees for added realism.
If you wish to purchase a model of a shop front, building, street, stadium, or a city block that includes intricate façade details, such as windows, doors, glass, metal and concrete, then we’re able to do this as a bespoke service. This realistic imagery is ideal for pitches and presentations.
Depending on your needs, you might choose a base model, as offered by LOD 1-2. LOD1 offers massing models that show accurate heights and proportions but minimal detail, with no functionality to separate the terrain. Whereas LOD2 has the same level of detail, but does allow you to separate the terrain and also includes trees.
