What's even better is Apple's latest iPhone introduces the new A8 chip and M8 motion coprocessor. This hardware makes a big difference with our Cesium pages, resulting in the smoothest virtual world application we've ever experienced on a mobile device using our building data. Below is a screenshot of Lower Manhattan in 3D using Cesium on the iPhone 6 Plus. Buildings are colorized in the traditional Sim City usage pattern. Contact us for a demonstration.

Cube Cities now offers API access to our database of floor information for commercial and residential buildings downtown San Francisco. Our database contains over 20 attributes for every building, including floor-specific geospatial data.
One key application for the Cube Cities API is enabling customer mapping of their internal private data sources such as tenant information. Another is to visualize floor-level data that regularly changes such as energy and water consumption.
The Cube Cities API provides authenticated access to our dataset through a simple REST API. Contact us for pricing and license terms.
The imagery below illustrates Cube Cities floor data relative to Google's autogenerated 3D imagery, which now provides a complete virtual representation of urban San Francisco.
