About the project

As our 3D map of London grew, we decided to upgrade Canary Wharf to LOD4 as it offers some of the most spectacular views of the city.

We captured the famously tall buildings and their surroundings using high-resolution aerial imagery and the latest photogrammetric capture techniques before adding the facade details for a stylish finish.

Our Canary Wharf model includes One Canada Square, 8 Canada Square, 25 Canada Square, One Churchill Place, 40 Bank Street, 25 Bank Street, 5 Canada Square, 25 North Colonnade, as well as a series of London Underground stations and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).
