About our High Detail London 3D model:

We started to build our High Detail 3D model of London back in 2007. To achieve a consistent level of accuracy, we have created a single block of imagery that covers over 45km² of central London at up to 2.5cm/pixel resolution. Within this block we have used over 50,000 tie points and 251 ground control points; this ensures that any measurement taken is within 150mm of its real world location. In fact, measurements taken by us have come in at an average tolerance of 40mm compared to a full measured survey.

We are continually expanding and upgrading this model using 2013 and 2014 high-res aerial imagery. For customers who are interested in understanding how London will look in years to come, we can upgrade the model to include proposed and consented schemes.
