Let’s break down the anatomy of Bentley® OpenCities™ Planner.
The Project Editor is cloud-software rich with features for building urban planning and infrastructure projects in real 3D worlds. Collaborate internally, use advanced planning tools, or publish projects to Public Views – targeting devices from large touch-tables to budget mobiles.
- Terrain, Reality, & City Models
- 3D for Architecture & Engineering
- Geospatial Data
- Review & Dialogue
- Export Tools
This is where your visions are realized. Use simple and advanced features to edit and customize models and geo-data directly in a live preview of the public interface. Edit maps, perform analytic tasks, customize the interface, co-operate, and publish.
Once you’ve completed a project there are several ways to share it with external stakeholders or the public-at-large. Publishing options include standard web and mobile interfaces, a desktop application optimized for large-format touch-screens, and even virtual reality – a solution for every use case.
Publishing a standard website – any modern web browser can stream 3D projects directly to your audience, without need for plugins or downloads.
A dedicated mobile interface caters to a modern public. Optimize communication with the residents by designing projects mobile-first.
360° Panorama allows for targeting markets with data limits and lower end devices. It supports Google Cardboard for cost-effective virtual reality and allows administrators to develop on-the-rails 3D experiences.
Showroom is a desktop application designed for exhibitions and touch-screens. Internet connectivity is not required, projects are downloaded to a local computer. High-end performance showcases your projects.
Virtual Reality – where the Real World meets the 3D World. Supporting HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, publish projects as fully immersive 3D experiences for internal planning and public exhibitions alike.
