A 3D model wins smart city award for Lublin

The comprehensive 3D model of Lublin (Poland) received a smart city award at this the 11th edition of the Smart City Forum. Lublin came first in the middle 100-500 inhabitants’ category.

Towards a smarter urban development

The comprehensive 3D model of buildings of Lublin was produced according to the international standard (cityGML technology) which is used by other European cities, including Berlin and Helsinki. It provides three-dimensional visualizations of urban objects, landform, layers of greenery etc.

This form of representations facilitates the preparation of expert materials (environmental studies, solar potential of buildings, noise distribution, impact on the immediate environment, and the like). Lublin’s model has been based and integrated with the existing 2D map tools, so in the future the design of buildings will be easier, more transparent, and intuitive.

“Three-dimensional model, which was created to meet Lublin needs, is the next stage of building an intelligent city and can be used in both participatory and urban development activities. For years, we have been working on making Lublin smart, and thus making it more attractive to residents and investors. The award confirms that it is a step in the right direction” said Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of Lublin quoted by the municipal portal.
