Digital 3D urban planning
Drafting urban planning concepts and incorporating them into the surrounding can be quick and easy.
All it takes is a single software solution.
From a draft to a 3D city model
in no time
VC Planner, urban planners and architects can integrate their drafts into 3D city models in the context of the surrounding and make them available to other users in just a few steps.
Here’s an overview of the solution’s key functions
These features make VC Planner the right solution for a variety of applications. For example, it can be used to present and compare in urban planning and architecture competitions, create urban planning drafts with ease, and collaborate with multiple colleagues on a given project.
Projects and permissions
Create multiple projects while assigning different sets of usage rights.
Viewpoints and camera flyovers
Creating viewpoints and camera flyovers takes just a few clicks.
Insert points, lines, polygons, circles, bounding boxes, and text labels.
Display and hide
It’s possible to display and hide buildings with a simple mouse-click.
Importing urban planning drafts, individual buildings, and street furniture is a snap.
Share and publish
Share plans and 3D scenes with other users via web links and/or publish them using a web browser.
Extrusion of drafted objects
Extrude created surfaces into 3D objects right within the current scene.
Customization of drafting objects
Design texture, line, and point styles and fine-tune your own font formats.

BIM and more – thanks to our FME extension
Along with the formats VC Planner already covers (shapefiles, glTF/glb, COLLADA, GeoJSON, georeferenced raster plans, KML/KMZ), our FME extension adds support for further 3D formats. In the future, it will thus be possible to integrate all the formats that are eventually supported by the data conversion tool FME into VC Planner. This is part of what makes VC Planner so efficient and flexible.

How can I use the VC Planner?
VC Planner as software or service
With VC Planner, our customers can choose from two different usage models. This ensures that everyone can take advantage of its benefits regardless of whether they have their own IT and GIS infrastructure.
for maximum flexibility
For customers that already use VC Publisher, we offer VC Planner in connection with a software license. The solution is then installed on the customer’s own infrastructure. Meanwhile, VC Planner’s administrative back end makes it possible to define users and roles and configure the integration of VC Map applications.
enjoy the benefits of our service
For customers that prefer not to handle the online operation of VC Planner on their own (or don’t have the IT infrastructure necessary to do so), we also make the solution available through the Amazon cloud. VC Planner can then be integrated into any VC Map.
