Parametricos launched CityLite, an open-source smart-cities concept
Our aim is to provide a free and open-source solution to provide tools for architects and engineers in the BIM industry with a framework to simulate their designs in a BIM and 3D GIS environment. CityLite, being an open-source solution, ensures the organic development, into a solution that will resolve workflow issues and improve the consideration of the surrounding environment in the design phases of a building, where normally it requires overpriced solutions with limited tools. That's why we are asking for your contribution to CityLite.
CityLite is a smart cities concept platform for smarter and greener cities. It was initially designed and developed in under 48 hours as part of our submission for the Cassini Hackathon - Digitising Green Spaces in June 2021.
The fast-paced work environment of the construction industry along with the lack of data during a project, forces most construction professionals to construct a project in a very short timeline. This practice emerges in isolation, with minimum consideration of the surrounding environment and the community the project will be in.
CityLite is a centralised platform for gathering data from different sources such as satellites, 3D Building Information Modeling models (BIM), GIS and IoT devices for the user to simulate different urban scenarios for a better built environment.
It's based on amazing open-source technologies such as #threejs #harpgl and #ifcjs
