Capabilities

Redwood City's newest interactive web map allows users to explore buildings in a 3D environment. The tool can be used to zoom in, out, and navigate around buildings to better understand their relationship to other buildings and has additional map features. The search bar can be used to find city addresses and zoom to the location, the measurement tool calculates distances and areas, and the shadow simulator tool shows shadows at different times of the day and year. The 3D Building Viewer also provides relevant measurement and property data for specific buildings including building height (estimate), base elevation (estimate), zoning, General Plan, and more.

The map includes a number of additional layers that can be made visible on the map, which includes:

  • Development Projects
  • Zoning
  • General Plan
  • Precise Plans
  • Priority Development Areas
  • Downtown Height Regulations
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Street Trees
  • Landmarks
  • Aerial Imagery

How to Use

The 3D Building Viewer allows users to navigate in the 2D planes, much like you would a typical web map, but with the added ability to also navigate in the 3D plane. This can be done by holding the right-click button and dragging on a traditional computer mouse. To navigate with a track pad or tablet/phone screen use the arrow symbol (Image result for quad arrow symbol) to switch navigation to 3D.
