Virtual Planning. Better Decisions. Real Smart Cities.

vrban allows users to explore virtual cities using the Oculus Rift and see the effects of proposed urban projects as if they were there.

Real Cities

Using Esri's CityEngine, 2D GIS data can be converted into 3D city models that can be explored by a user and his or her colleagues.


vrban makes collaborating on an urban plan easy by allowing multiple people to view and make proposed changes on a 2D map, while oculus users experience the effects of these changes in real time.
