Helsinki's 3D city models

There are two next generation 3D city models of Helsinki available: a semantic city information model and a visually high-quality reality mesh model.  

The city information model allows users to perform a variety of analyses focusing on energy consumption, greenhouse gases or the environmental impacts of traffic, for example. The reality mesh model can be utilised in various online services or as the basis for all kinds of design projects, such as planning the exit routes and the locations of performance stages and sales stalls for city events, for example.  

The models are available as open data.

Helsinki’s city models are available as open data from Helsinki Region Infoshare.


These videos showcase Helsinki’s 3D city models, as well as their benefits and possibilities.

View the city information model

The city information model allows you to view not only the city’s buildings and information on them, but also the city’s terrain model.

View the reality mesh model

The reality mesh model allows you to examine Helsinki as it was in summer 2015 and visit places that you might not think to go to otherwise.

Helsinki's Energy and Climate Atlas

The Energy and Climate Atlas contains plenty of building-specific basic information, energy and repair data, as well as data on the consumption of water, district heating and electricity.
