State unveils complete 3D map of Estonia

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications and the Land Board have unveiled an application that has overlaid three-dimensional building renders over the map of Estonia, allowing people to visualize most buildings in Estonia.

Artu Ellmann, Deputy Director General of the Land Board, said the Geo3D strategic program will be supplemented with further 3D data and additional services. The recently published three-dimensional map is the first of the services.

"We hope this finds use in the analysis and planning of both natural and human-made environments," he said.

The economic affairs ministry has already put the 3D options to use, allowing for a view of future developments in Estonia in their "3D kaksik" The new digital tools allow a look at what a building would look like in the existing environment, what restrictions should be considered when designing the building and how shadows will affect the building. The 3D tool is mainly meant for decision-making when it comes to environmental decisions.
