Adam Cohen, founder of EarthData Solutions, credits the realism of the urban models with their origin -- aerial photography that was mathematically corrected to extract geographic features in their precise geographic locations on the Earth's surface. "Unlike many 3D models designed solely for animation and visual effect purposes, these models were originally created for engineering and design applications which required very precise and detailed information." Cohen explains that the development of the Manhattan and L.A. urban models took over a year and involved the efforts of cartographers, computer scientists, and experts in visualization techniques. EarthData Solutions' urban 3D models have been used in other films, including Sony Picture Imageworks' 'Spiderman.'
