CityEngine unveils mobile Virtual Reality solution

ArcGIS 360VR

We are excited to announce a mobile VR solution for urban planners, architects, and GIS professionals. With the latest version of CityEngine, we offer the ability to simply and quickly create VR experiences on mobile devices. You can view these experiences in the new ArcGIS 360 VR app from Esri Labs. Once downloaded from ArcGIS Online, you can immerse into 3D scenes by teleporting to static viewpoints and comparing different urban planning scenarios.

“We are pleased to see Esri add a mobile VR solution to its 3D smart city platform,” said Christian Huerzeler, project manager at the Department of Urban Planning in Zurich. “By using ArcGIS 360 VR, our planning board and jurors can now study the impact of new architectural developments and urban planning scenarios from the perspective of pedestrians and citizens.”

The app is available from the Oculus store for the Oculus Go and the Samsung Gear VR headsets. For information on how to download, install, and use the app, go to the ArcGIS 360VR Quick Start Guide , or contact us directly at zrh-support@esri.com

Enjoy!
