Knowledge Transfer

Knowledge Transfer

We were the first to offer Esri/ArcGIS CityEngine training worldwide, and we’ve been doing project work with it since 2009.   We have been conducting formal CityEngine training courses since 2013 for a wide range of clients.

We are now the first Esri partner to offer CityEngine training online direct from us and via Planetizen.

Check out the course / CityEngine system requirements and recommendations here.

Content Creation

We can do the hard work so you don’t have to!

From procedural rule files to 3D models for use in professional modelling tools. We can create CityEngine rule libraries for specific datasets and help your source 3D geospatial data through our partners.

City Information Models

We have been helping the City of Lancaster in partnership with ImaginationLancaster implement a “City Information Model” (CIM), the first step in the road towards a city and district wide “Digital Twin“. Our first 3D opendata set has been released as part of this project.

We have learnt a lot and can now do the same for your city or area. Contact us for a discussion or click on the buttons to read more.
