London Level 1 Models (LOD1)

The Vertex Modelling Level of Detail 1 (LOD1) product is a low poly, geographically accurate and cost effective 3D model of London. The model is manually captured using stereo Photogrammetry and includes generalised building shapes and simplified terrain.

The LOD2 model is captured using high resolution aerial imagery, however buildings are simplified, resulting in a generalised urban environment. This product includes various details such as peaked, gabled and mansard roof shapes. Our LOD1 product is modular and can be used seamlessly with higher LOD London 3D models.

About LOD1 London 3D model:

Our LOD1 model is a low detail, low poly 3D model of London. The model is captured using the same triangulation and high-res aerial imagery as our LOD3 model, but we omit some of the features such as dorm windows, chimney stacks, party walls etc. to keep this model light, low poly and cost effective yet geographically accurate. LOD1 model is supplied with a simplified terrain model.

For sites outside central London that are not available off the shelf we set-up projects to order with numerous ground control points to ensure accuracy (1m in all axis) consistent with our central London model.

We are continuously expanding and upgrading this model using 2013 and 2014 high-res aerial imagery.
