CityGML datasets

All datasets can be downloaded freely, but may be used for evaluation, research, and education purposes only. Please note the respective copyrights. Click on a small image in order to view an enlarged version.

Most datasets are now available in CityGML versions 2.0.0, 1.0.0, and 0.4.0.

Within the new files all GML objects, i.e. all geometry and feature objects, have been assigned unique gml:id values. It is highly recommended to keep track of and to preserve these IDs in applications in order to be able to consistently maintain CityGML models within GIS and spatial database management systems. For the creation of ID values it is recommended to use global unique IDs (UUID).


This is the first publicly available CityGML 2.0 data set. It is a 3D model demonstrating nearly all CityGML feature classes from the CityGML 2.0 specification. Especially instances of the classes from the new thematic modules Bridge and Tunnel are included. SolitaryVegetationObjects (the trees) are using ImplicitGeometries with local coordinates to allow for reuse of the geometry definitions. The features also have old and new thematic attributes.

Please note that the dataset has been created manually and represents an artificial scenery. Coordinates are not georeferenced and the scene is downscaled to around 1:220. The dataset is decomposed into 6 separate files in the archive referenced below; all files should be loaded into a CityGML 2.0 capable viewer like the FZK Explorer 2.0 or FME 2012 Data Inspector of Service Pack 2 (click on screenshot on the left). The archive also contains a 3D PDF file which can be displayed in Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.0 or higher.

This CityGML data set displays three LoD3 Building objects including the following feature types: GroundSurface, WallSurface, RoofSurface, BuildingInstallation, Window, Door. In addition, CityFurniture and SolitaryVegetation Object features have been modelled on the basis of CityGML's implicit geometry representation providing three levels of detail. The data set also includes a Road object that consists of various TrafficArea as well as AuxiliaryTrafficArea features. Considering the number of modelled objects and their detailed representation, the memory footprint of this CityGML file is relatively small. This is due to the usage of implicit geomety representations and the efficient data export from SketchUp™, which does not require face triangulation.

Buildings in LOD 2 with photorealistic textures near Max-Joseph-Platz in Munich, Germany. The CityGML model contains a TIN relief with a georeferenced orthophoto texture modelled as GeoreferencedTexture element. The mapping function is provided as separate World File. Furthermore, the following feature types are represented: Building, RoofSurface, WallSurface, GroundSurface, and ReliefFeature.

Street setting in Frankfurt with 5 textured buildings in LOD 3. The models were designed as part of a larger project which shows traffic planning. The buildings are designed in-depth with the following items: window frames, dormers, balconies, chimneys, rain gutters, entrance stairs and billboards. The following feature types are represented: Building, RoofSurface, WallSurface, GroundSurface, Window, Door, BuildingInstallation, LandUse, Road, TrafficArea, AuxiliaryTrafficArea, and Address.

The media::lab of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences provides CityGML datasets for several small villages. One of these small villages is Waldbruecke in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany. It contains 606 buildings and building parts on 525 different ground patches, including transportation, waterbody and some solitary vegetation objects. Further geometry and semantic content for these objects will be added subsequently. The corresponding CityGML files of app. 6.5 Mbyte have been compiled from real data. For security reasons, the georeference has been removed in favor of a simple local coordinate system. Note, that as a particularity the CityGML file has been generated from a local database of the WB3 project.

A huge CityGML file (44 GB uncompressed!) is available below. The file was created from 22x22 copies of the Ettenheim dataset. Furthermore, the single LOD4 building available on this site has been added four times to each copy in order to enrich the Ettenheim city model with LOD4 data. The coordinate values of each copy are updated such that all copies are spatially arranged in a grid. Also the ID values are updated such that no two identical ID values are contained. This dataset is intended to be used to evaluate CityGML processing tools, visualization systems, and 3D spatial databases with respect to performance and their capabilities to handle really large models.

The files are a snapshot from an area around Leverkusen in Germany. This type of data was produced for the whole state of North-Rhine Westphalia (18 million citizens). It is being used for the computation of noise immission maps in order to implement the directive of the European Commission on Environmental Noise 2002/49/EC. The files include simple (LOD0 and LOD1) but semantically rich feature data including application specific data for noise dispersion simulation.

Virtual 3D city model of Ettenheim in Germany, automatically derived from an IFC dataset and manually enriched wrt. the employed CityGML feature types. This dataset contains most of the different CityGML top level feature types (Building, ReliefFeature, WaterBody, Road, CityFurniture, PlantCover, GenericCityObject) in LOD3. Please note, that it may take a few minutes to load the file into the Aristoteles Viewer.
