JSON CityJSON File

A file format for the efficient storage and exchange of 3D city models and landscapes. It has the following benefits and features:

  • Optimized CityGML: The CityJSON format is based on CityGML, which is an OGC standard for representing and exchanging 3D urban data. However, CityJSON is optimized for simplicity and efficiency, using JSON instead of XML as the underlying syntax. CityJSON reduces the file size and complexity of CityGML files, making them easier to process and manipulate.
  • 3D City Data: The CityJSON files can store 3D city models and landscapes, which are composed of various city objects, such as buildings, roads, bridges, vegetation, etc. Each city object has a name, a geometry, and a set of attributes. The format also supports nested hierarchy, reusable geometry component instances, and custom materials with texture images, which enhance the realism and detail of the 3D city data.

CityJSON Files Converter: Autoconverter allows you to import and export CityJSON files, and convert them into various other 3D mesh file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS`, etc. Our software supports the reading and writing of CityJSON geometries with custom attributes, which preserve the semantic information of the 3D city data.


X3D Extensible 3D File

An open-source and royalty-free XML based format that was developed by the Web3D Consortium. X3D has many applications and benefits for the 3D graphics industry, especially in relation to web applications. Here are some of the key features and advantages of X3D:

  • VRML Replacement: X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language, and it was a standard format for describing interactive 3D scenes on the web.
  • X3DB File Format: For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file. X3DB is a compressed version of X3D, which reduces the file size and improves the loading speed, an important factor for web applications.

X3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application seamlessly handle X3D file import and export, ensuring smooth data exchange and compatibility. This enables you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, STEP, and more, to X3D and vice versa.
