3D buildings data and maps - from Emu analytics

I've used this several times recently.

Emu Analytics have made some of their building height data available.
The largest urban areas in the UK are available...

  • Go to the website using the link above.
  • You'll see instructions on the right hand side.
  • You can search for or delimit an urban area using the boxes in the top left.
  • Bottom right you will see the switch to turn on the 3D buildings.

Hold down the CTRL button while using the mouse - moving forward and back tilts the view, and you can also rotate the view by moving the mouse from left to right with the button held down. Also zoom in and out with the wheel.

The view above shows Sheffield... other cities are available...
