Value of Open Data
Gruntify has been in collaboration with the City of Melbourne recently to harness their rich set of Open Data into our crowdsourcing software technology. This collaboration has resulted in Gruntify being able to provide our customers with interactive 3D mapping in the City of Melbourne and show both existing and proposed building developments.
What did we do?
These new layers were created from simple 2-dimensional building footprints that were pulled to 3D using height attribute for each building. We think that these results are magnificent and are now available for both mobile and web maps in Gruntify, online and offline.
Last but not least
The video provides a short insight into how Gruntify has implemented the City of Melbourne’s Open Data for a 3D effect. The low buildings are yellow, taller buildings are red, and proposed building plans are blue. And, of course, each building can be tapped on to see more information about it. This is truly the future of technology right here! Not only is this visually appealing, but it makes maps easier to comprehend and read due to the building transparency and color settings.
