March 27, 2012 -- Palm Springs, CA -- In a move to better support the emerging realm of 3D GIS, PenBay Solutions and CyberCity 3D announced today a strategic partnership at the Esri Partner Conference in Palm Springs. This partnership, focused on serving the needs of the global GIS community, brings together the Facility GIS expertise of industry leader PenBay and the advanced 3D data technology from CyberCity to provide a revolutionary data offering: the 3D BasemapTM. This z-enabled basemap stands in contrast to other 3D Building products in the market, providing real GIS data to support end user applications, both in a 2D and 3D context.
The two companies have been working together increasingly over the past 2 years, and after exploring data options on recent projects decided to collaborate on this new data offering. “We are excited to be working closely with PenBay on enhancing our data products specifically for Esri GIS users”, stated Kevin DeVito, CEO of CyberCity3D, “With CyberCity3D’s unique technology and unbeatable price point we are making these capabilities available to a broad range of users around the world”.
This 3D data foundation is currently aimed at supporting the specific application needs of Cities, Universities, Federal Agencies, and Commercial organizations. The data is delivered in geodatabase format, and in addition to the 3D buildings it contains feature classes for detailed roof parts, building footprints with building measurement attribution, in addition to solar calculation attributes.
“Our joint work developing the 3D BasemapTM is really significant from a GIS perspective”, said Ben Yetman, PenBay’s Director of Strategic Technologies, “Our GIS customers are looking to do more with 3D than flying around their city, and with the 3D BasemapTM they get a true GIS foundation to deliver application value across the board.”
These data products are currently available for purchase in convenient tile formats both in the US and abroad. For more detail on the 3D BasemapTM you can visit PenBay’s website: www.penbaysolutions.com/3d-basemap
