The reality mesh model

This model allows you to examine Helsinki over several years and visit places that you might not think to go to otherwise. You can explore the outer islands of Helsinki or find your home building, for example. The model is based on aerial photographs and includes all the stationary objects in the city at the time of photography, such as buildings, cars and ships. 

The only thing you need to view the model is an up-to-date browser.

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. Thanks to the terrain model, buildings are presented at their correct elevation.

You can search for buildings by address or properties. Clicking on a building allows you to access its property data, such as the year of construction and number of floors. You can view buildings textured or untextured.

For viewing the terrain model, you can choose between an open street map view and a view based on aerial photographs.

Helsinki’s Energy and Climate Atlas

The Energy and Climate Atlas is based on the city information model. It contains plenty of building-specific basic information, energy and repair data, as well as data on the consumption of water, district heating and electricity. The Atlas shows you an approximate energy consumption estimate for nearly every building in Helsinki.

The model also includes calculations of the solar energy potential of all roof and wall surfaces in Helsinki, i.e. how much solar radiation energy surfaces receive per year and per month. All in all, the model includes information on nearly a million surfaces.

Munkkiniemi-Haaga 1915 plan

The Munkkiniemi-Haaga plan is a virtual version of a miniature model depicting Eliel Saarinen’s city plan from 1915. In keeping with the original miniature model, the virtual version is quite accurate, featuring even the windows drawn on the buildings. Saarinen’s model is a notable part of the history of city planning in Finland. Though it was never implemented, the plan can now be easily viewed by anyone.
