Cityzenith’s 5D Smart World software platform has been expanded to include over 100 cities in 12 countries across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.


Cityzenith founder and CEO, Michael Jansen, explains that Smart World has been in development “in semi-stealth mode” for more than five years. It was initially developed in closed pilots with cities such as Barcelona, Chicago as well as areas of Singapore and then in a closed Beta phase with some of the world’s leading architecture, planning and construction firms.


It aims to revolutionise the way building professionals use data to design, collaborate, analyse, present, and operate their projects.


"We continue to mature, and today are serving users all over the world,” said Jansen. “As the company approaches the public launch of Smart World on May 3rd in Chicago, the addition of 100 new city models to Smart World’s growing global ecosystem dramatically impacts our ability to enrol Smart World users in new geographies around the globe, as well as expand our engagements with existing customers with projects and offices in multiple cities and countries."


5D Smart City models provide extensive contextual information for almost any building project for over 100 cities in 12 countries. Its ’smart city layers’ include curated open data and web services, 3D Buildings and other infrastructure layers, satellite imagery, road networks and traffic, weather, and premium IoT services.


Data layers are curated and normalised to ensure that they are compatible with industry data model standards and complete.


The expansion of cities coverage complements the recent expansion of Cityzenith’s 5D Smart City databases which now include thousands of curated and normalised public and private commercial data sources, and a growing library of analytics tools. Cityzenith is based in Chicago with an office in London.
