Main Wikipedia article: 3D city models
  • 3D city models are basically a combination of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and 3D architectural models with varying levels of detail. Some include Textures for the surface of the ground and textures for the surfaces of the 3D models of the buildings.
  • The data (GIS + building models in 3D + textures) can be released under some FOSS license or it can be proprietary!
  • The data is loaded into some program and rendered by this program. Then a **screenshot** of the rendered scene is taken.
  • For such a **screenshot** to be on Wikimedia Commons, it has be under some appropriate license!
