The work was carried out by Simplex Mapping Solutions in a unique technology based on aerial photography. Every point in the city was photographed from dozens of different angles, providing ultra-precision mapping of 3 cm per pixel.
The 3-D system's capabilities include measurement tools, various GIS layers, shading by trees and buildings over time, and more.
Both new systems are also available for smartphone and tablet users.
The upgraded system is a huge step bringing Jerusalem into the technological forefront of geographical information systems, alongside a range of new tools, innovative systems, and fruitful collaborations with hi-tech companies.
