00:01CityEngine is tightly integrated with ArcGIS.
00:04Here, we have Philadelphia with about 160,000 building footprints, 40,000 streets...
00:10...and about 3,000 pictometry building models.
00:14We can simply select an area of interest in ArcMap and then run a model that sets an...
00:20...attribute on your GIS data and clips out the terrain and imagery for your area of interest.
00:34We can then bring this data back into CityEngine.
00:38We have a clipped terrain with associated imagery...
00:41...and we can select the GIS features for our area of interest.
00:46In this case, we're using a selection query to only...
00:50...load those features that we're interested in.
00:54And you'll notice that for two building footprints, there are no 3D building models.
00:58Now we can easily create these by applying a procedural rule.
01:06And then we can export the new 3D models back to the original feature class.
01:13In this case, we are appending the new models to the existing feature class...
01:17...but it is also possible to update existing 3D models.
01:23And then we can load the full feature class in ArcGlobe if we want to view it in wider extent.
01:31Or we just export our CityEngine scene to a CityEngine web scene...
01:36...and publish it on ArcGIS Online.
Integration with ArcGIS
CityEngine 2012.1 fully supports the Esri file Geodatabase (including textured multipatches) and the Shapefile format which allows users to import/export any geo-spatial vector data such as parcels, building footprints with arbitrary attributes, or line data to create street networks. And publishing a 3D city scene on ArcGIS Online is now very easy.
The CityEngine Selection toolbox can be downloaded here.
