It is a personal work as a hobby at the moment, I have work on it since last September.
I use:
- Google Sketch Up for building modeling
-3Ds for render
- MapInfo Pro

The work process as following:
1. Process GIS data with building footprints base on Satellite image
2. Go out to collects building pictures
3. Model & Texture the buildings
4. Put the buildings on the map to fit the footprints
5. Render it
6. Put the labels on it
7. Process the image as tile map for web

Very nice Tuam! You must be a master at modeling. In terms of total hours, how long did this project take?

It take about 400 hours to finish 70% of the work :)
I'm just newbie in GIS and 3d world. I started learning Sketch up and 3ds when I started this project (half year ago).
It take a couple of weeks at first to see tutorial (available on internet) to know how-to.

This map is about 20 km2, I have 500 building models.

WOW! I think that you have found a new calling Tuan! This is beautiful work, and I am very impressed that this is your first time attempting to do this. You are an obvious natural. Kudo's to you for stepping up and teaching yourself these skills and inspiring the rest of us along the way. Keep up the great work!

I love it!! Looks a lot like a SimCity type map but much more realistic. I am VERY impressed. I wouldn't mind seeing more of it.

Seems kind of of stupid to just write another praise message, but here it goes: gorgeous, I love it!

What are you thinking for the purpose of this map - or is it just a hobby project to play with the technology?

I bet this is how the municipal planners would love to city to look like - it looks all clean and pretty! I would be interesting to compare to an aerial/satellite image.

Well, I have the building models with attributes. So the data could be used for visualization, or some new service like searching for 10 highest buildings in an area :) . I'm not sure, at the moment it is just a hobby project.

Tuan,

Very impressive. I love 3D models because I can grasp of what's like in the area compare to 2D maps! I'm sure someone
will hire you a to do 3D Model some day.

Robert
