Month: August 2019
Organization: City of Burnaby
Products: ArcMap 10.4.1

This map displays 3D buildings on a 2D thematic map with the buildings colour-coded to display a quick visual representation of the general building use in the Metrotown Town Centre area in the City of Burnaby. To create the 3D buildings, orthophotos and LiDAR data sources were used to capture 2D building outlines and height information. The output data was manipulated using a translator tool and, finally, the 3D buildings were overlaid with a building use layer.
