CityLite Smart-Cities Concept now 100% Open Source on Github! As part of the 2 days CASSINI EU competition, we developed CityLite | Open-Source Smart Cities Concept a 100% open-source, smart-cities concept platform that can host satelite and GIS data, and geolocate accurately BIM IFC models.

What is 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 an open-source, smart cities platform for professionals in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC), that empowers their workflow in all phases of a project cycle.

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
