CityEngineUrban planning using a digital twin30-day free trial

Transform 2D GIS data into smart 3D city models

Identify relationships between projects, assess their feasibility and plan their implementation with Esri CityEngine’s 3D visualisation to improve urban planning, architecture and design.

How it works

Build flexible scenarios faster

Save time and money by analysing building proposals to see how they fit into your city’s overall vision for the future. CityEngine allows you to make as many scenarios as you need with as many modifications as necessary.

Create realistic context

By making the 3D model as real as possible in the design phase, you will be able to see where a proposed building blocks the view, casts shadows and reflects heat.

Share your urban plan

Publish your 3D model online to allow others to contribute to it and participate in improving the community.
