CyberCity 3D is a collaborative partner with Google™ in their “Cities in 3D Program ”, assisting government agencies in placing their cities online on Google Earth™. CyberCity 3D’s huge inventory of city models can be used in a wide variety of Planning, Governmental, and GIS applications. One very important application is the use of 3D city model content to enhance floodplain mapping. You are able to see the real impact of flooding and water damage on cities, using flood level data in the context of 3D structures. More effective floodplain mapping can dramatically increase public awareness of flood zones as well as improve response time and preparedness for such natural disasters.
