Bluesky Ireland 3d building models


Bluesky 3D building models provide an intelligent, accurate and detailed visual representation of the built environment, allowing interaction, analysis and interrogation of our urban landscapes on an unprecedented level.


Derived photogrammetrically from our high resolution stereo aerial photography, our 3D building models are specifically designed to support developers, architects and urban planners in making efficient, cost effective and informed decisions about the urban environment.

Wireframe is just one of the many formats that Bluesky Ireland can provide 3D models in, which can be of entire cites or individual buildings


The 3D models can be used in almost any CAD, or GIS software, as well as specialist software such as 3D Studio and Rhino or even SketchUp


New technology and advances in image processing mean that  automated, fully rendered 3D models of entire cities are a fraction of the cost that they used to be

All Bluesky Ireland 3D models are compatible with GIS and CAD software, such as AutoCAD, Microstation, ArcGIS, MapInfo and Google SketchUp, as well as specialist visualisation packages including 3D Studio Max, Rhino and Maya.


Whatever level of detail you need, Bluesky 3D models can help. We produce our models at three distinct levels of detail, from our Level of Detail 1 (LOD1) simple block buildings, through to our LOD3 models containing fully modelled roof structures, dormer windows and chimneys. Accompanying terrain information is created on a bespoke basis for our models, ensuring the most realistic 3D environment is created.

3D building models are available off-the-shelf for a number of urban centres across the UK, with sites outside of these areas modelled and delivered via a rapid bespoke data creation service.


Bluesky Ireland are able to bring you the Skyline online 3D viewer

which is one of the most powerful geospatially enabled virtual worlds available.  It enables organisations to view and query all of their GIS and other geospatial data over real terrain and in a fully interactive 3D environment, then serve this up over the internet to the users within the organisation or even the wider pubic, through an easy-to-use and familiar web browser interface. 

The system can also be used for planning, enforcement, asset management, environment and security to name but a few applications.  The 3D model can have aerial photography and/or a map data base as the backdrop.  Almost any GIS data or other location data held by your organisation can be included and the

3D models can be photorealistic and queryable. 

Applications include:

Environmental Management, Proposal Design and Evaluation, Renewable energy planning, Impact assessment,  Dissemination, collaboration and public engagement, Event and disaster Planning and Simulation, Asset Tracking and Management, Tourism
