Success Stories

CHALLENGE

Berlin Partner for Business and Technology was looking for a central platform to market the city. The idea is to present the potential of the city of Berlin to an international audience and show that Berlin is one of the most attractive regions for living and working worldwide.

SOLUTION

The 3DCL team developed a digital Berlin 3D city model, which forms the technical backbone of the Business Location Center and the Berlin Economic Atlas, together with Berlin Partner and the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research. From that model, 3DCL synthesized a digital 3D map and made it available as a robust and easy-to-use mobile application. The 3D map covers an area of 850 sqm, more than 540,000 textured building models, digital terrain model, aerial image, street map, and various location information.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“Berlin’s digital 3D city model represents a major asset of Berlin Partner GmbH and an important media for city marketing and business development. With 3D Content Logistics’ smartMap, we could generate an easy to use mobile version of the 3D model, which we can take to our customers and which allows us to easily explore and present interesting sites and properties.”

– Karin Teichmann, former head of Berlin Business Location Center

“For technology-oriented companies, startups in digital economies as well as research institutes, this model serves as a unique foundation for research and development. With this model, Berlin, as a digital and innovative city, strengthens its leading role in Europe.”

– Dr. Stefan Franzke, managing director, Berlin Partner for Business and Technology

“The Berlin government offered its support for the project and worked alongside the local experts who are global leaders in this technology.”

– Cornelia Yzer, former Berlin State Senator for Economics, Technology and Research

CHALLENGE

To digitize citizens’ services, the public health department of the District Neukölln of Berlin wanted to provide modern means to present and communicate the various offers for young families in the areas of childcare, schooling, administration, and more to the Neukölln citizens.

SOLUTION

Based on our smartMap technology, we have designed a mobile App for iOS and Android, which bundles and interactively presents the various offers for families, additional location information and other relevant content. Key characteristics of the resulting App are offer details, other important thematic information, the 3D map as central user interface component, and the exploitation of App-specific communication means.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“Together with 3D Content Logistics we have developed an App to support our prevention chain. This innovative App allows us to use modern media to inform young families about offers in their district and to explore and use them. A big success of this project was the 2nd rank in the 2014 eGovernment contents.”

Falko Liecke, deputy mayor of the District Neukölln of Berlin

CHALLENGE

To support business services and marketing, Berlin Partner for Business and Technolgy desired a solution for creating high-quality virtual camera flights through 3D city models in a quick, easy, and efficent way.

SOLUTION

With the Smart Video webservice, 3D Content Logistics could provide a web-based all-in-one solution for the configuration, authoring, and generation of high-quality virtual camera flights. For this, we integrated various relevant data sources, including the official digital Berlin 3D city model, 3D vegetation models, and additional location information from the Berlin Economic Atlas. All functionalities for managing videos in projects, for specifying the three-dimensional camera path, and for authoring video content, image and text overlays, and 3D rendering styles are accessible through a web-based user interface. Additional tools assist users in generating appealing virtual tours. Also, generated video files can be shared easily with other users or publicly, or can be downloaded and integrated into websites or presentations.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“With the Smart Video Webservice we can create individual virtual tours through our digitial Berlin city model very easily, project-oriented, and, specifically, without the need for additional hardware or video authoring software, which allows us to cope with requirements from the daily business directly and on demand.”
