The City of Cambridge, Massachusetts, Geographic Information System (GIS) City-Wide 3D project
provides a detailed three-dimensional model including the terrain, groundplan and buildings of the city.
The buildings layer was developed from stereo photogrammetric methods, capturing the roof-details larger than 1 Meter with a precision of about 10 centimeters. The roof-print of the building is projected to a terrain model to create a 3D building volume. This dataset can be opened with GIS Applications by ESRI, including ArcScene and ArcGIS Pro.
This Scene Layer includes both 3D Buildings and Bridges. This dataset can be opened with ArcGIS Online Scene Viewer or ArcGIS Pro.

The Buildings and Bridges 3D layers were created using aerial imagery from 2010, 2014, & 2018 flyovers. These models were built using photogrammetric processing by CyberCity 3D and in some cases enhanced or supplemented by in-house editing. The buildings in bridges have a level of detail (LOD) of 2.0 or better.

This Scene Layer was created from a Scene Layer Package (.slpk) published from ArcGIS Pro. A link to the source data is available on the item details page for this layer under the Details section on the right side of the page. Click the link to open the item details page for the Scene Layer Package. You will see a download button the top right of that page.
This underlying Scene Layer Package will be updated as necessary and may include geometry, attribute and/or symbology updates. Change details will be outlined in the Scene Layer Package item details page.
