Partnering with spatial branding agency Graft Brandlab, 3D mapping company Here created this immersive smart city projection. The projection brings a San Francisco city map to life and translates big data through three-dimensional forms. Showcasing a 3D transportation infrastructure -- everything from traffic patterns to wireless internet waves -- this CNC-cut sculpture is turned immersive with the help of modern technology.

In addition to allowing a connected transportation infrastructure to come to life digitally, Here's 3D mapping technology can also be used by architects, urban planners and designers who wish to translate their vision in a more immersive way.

This projection uses real data to explain, perfect and test urban planning concepts before they become a reality, making it a powerful presentation tool for those designing the world's smart cities.
