(June 9, 2016 - Los Angeles, CA) CyberCity 3D, Inc., a leader in 3D geospatial smart city 3D modeling and data generation, is teaming with Lisbon, Portugal-based software company Baseform Ltd. to create a one-of-a-kind Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. CyberCity 3D has combined its open architecture 3D smart buildings with Baseform Ltd.'s next generation software in networked water infrastructure for SaaS planning and analytics, to devise a unique 3D solution for city water utility asset management and planning.
By deploying on a web-based interface designed to work with both large and small diverse data systems, Baseform's open architecture SaaS is changing the way water systems are managed and maintained globally. Through this partnership, two key elements – 3D building information and geo-location consumer information within those buildings – are now available on a web-based, 3D visualization platform.
"Water gives us dependable, quantifiable evidence of human presence and intensity around the city, 24/7/365. With the leading-edge depiction of the cityscape that CyberCity 3D brings us, we are able to offer unprecedented capabilities for managing the city and its infrastructure”, stated Sergio Coelho, Co-Founder and CEO of Baseform Ltd.
CyberCity 3D, Inc. and Baseform began their collaboration nearly 18 months ago, with downtown Los Angeles chosen as their first test area. The stunning results show 3D visualizations supporting complex data streams such as water pressure, water quality, failure probability areas, water consumption patterns, service metrics, and infrastructural sustainability, as they relate to buildings and the people who occupy them.
"Baseform is the most complete solution we have worked with to date that delivers both analytical and visual information in a streamlined, web-based architecture.
CyberCity 3D + Baseform water utility SaaS can be used by water utility engineers, planners, sustainability stakeholders, and executives," declared Kevin DeVito, CEO of CyberCity 3D, Inc.
Metropolitan areas concentrate 80% of the US population today. Designing and managing cities and their infrastructures has never been so complex. Water infrastructure management and maintenance is mind-boggling, according to a 2012 American Water Works Association (AWWA) report entitled “Buried No Longer: Confronting America’s Water Infrastructure Challenge.”
The cost of repairing the existing damage and keeping up with ongoing maintenance is staggering. “Restoring existing water systems as they reach the end of their useful lives and expanding them to serve a growing population will cost at least $1 trillion over the next 25 years,” according to the AWWA report. Through 2050, the costs escalate to $1.7 trillion or $30 billion annually. Municipalities face great challenges ahead and will need more flexible tools and more focused analytics.
CyberCity 3D + Baseform water utility SaaS will go the distance to meet these challenges head-on, with this vital 3D water utility management and planning solution. Knowledge is power, and having this invaluable data at their disposal will make decision-making and planning more manageable for city stakeholders.
