3D Virtual City Model

Following the success of the 3D Hackathon on 11th & 12th May 2019 we are releasing the Dublin Docklands SDZ (Strategic Development Zone) model data on Dublinked – Smart Dublin’s Open Data portal for the Dublin Region – on June 5th 2019!

The model is provided as an FBX file containing the underlying geometry and a separate textures file of the building facades – this data can be viewed in free or partially free software such as Unreal Engine or Unity, and we will also be providing user guides for getting started with the data using these platforms.

This valuable data is being released under a Creative Commons BY-NC licence, meaning that you may not resell the data, and that if you create a new application or service using any of its components, you must credit the original data source. You can learn more about this type of licence here on the Creative Commons website.

This data has been made available with huge thanks to our partners D3D Geomatics, The Science Foundation-funded Building City Dashboards Team at Maynooth University, and Dublin City Council.

We would love you to stay in touch and tell us how you are using the data! This gives us insight into the innovative ideas people are working on or developing using the model.
