CityLite is a smart cities concept platform for smarter and greener cities. It was initially designed and developed in under 48 hours as part of our submission for the Cassini Hackathon - Digitising Green Spaces in June 2021.
The fast-paced work environment of the construction industry along with the lack of data during a project, forces most construction professionals to construct a project in a very short timeline. This practice emerges in isolation, with minimum consideration of the surrounding environment and the community the project will be in. CityLite is an open-source, smart cities platform for professionals in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC), that empowers their workflow in all phases of a project cycle.
CityLite is a centralised platform for gathering data from different sources such as satellites, 3D Building Information Modeling models (BIM), GIS and IoT devices for the user to simulate different urban scenarios for a better built environment.
CityLite is based on open-source software such as harpgl, ifcjs and threejs and others

There are three main actions on the CityLite demo at the moment:
- Load a BIM model on the map by uploading your own IFC file and geolocate it with coordinates
- Upload a GIS (GeoJson) source and create a layer to visualise it
- Simulate the sun and shadows by selecting the calendar on the top right
There's a few ways to contribute to this project and improve it:
- Fork the project repository and make your first pull request
- Submit sample Satelite Images (TIF), BIM Models (IFC), a square thumbnail image and the project's location
- Test it and create Issues in github so that we can start working on them
