AUTHORS: Jeff Amero, City of Cambridge

ABSTRACT: The City of Cambridge has been working on integrating 3D into the GIS workflow for the past several years. Many of the technical challenges of working with 3D maps have improved significantly as both GIS software and computer hardware have evolved. The Cambridge 3D project has focused on 3D data development, internal workflow within City departments, interactive mapping, and a 3D Web page with data download capabilities. The City now has a plan in place for data maintenance and for developing a 3D city map which will be integrated with 2D GIS and related tabular data. In this presentation we will look at all aspects of building a 3D model, collaborating with our Community Development Department, creating a workflow for both staff and the developer community, building a 3D program within the GIS framework, getting 3D out to the public, and the road ahead.
