Software for the generation and modification of building databases


The WallMan software offers a convenient facility to generate and edit urban and indoor building databases. Especially the 3D view of the building data helps to detect errors in the database. Several import filters for standard GIS (MapInfo, Arcview,..) CAD (DXF, Shapefile,...) and pixel formats (Bitmaps,...) are available.



WallMan offers many feature to convert, create and edit databases:

  • Vector oriented CAD-tools (move, delete, edit,...)
  • Dialogs for the settings of the material properties (individual or default values)
  • Zoom features for the display
  • Converters for a variety of GIS (MapInfo, Arcview,..), CAD (DXF, Shapefile,...) and pixel (Bitmap) data formats
  •    - MapInfo

       - ArcView (Shapefile)

       - Data Exchange Format DXF (2D, 3D)

       - AutoCAD Format (DWG)

       - Stereolithography Format (STL)

       - Geb (Pegasos,...) and Gen format

       - Aircom ASSET/ ENTERPRISE (NSN NetAct)

       - Agilent Wizard

       - MSI Planet (Siemens Tornado)

       - and many more..

  • Filters for export of databases in open ASCII file format (either urban or indoor)
  • 3D view (with rotation, zoom,...)
  • Mark and find objects
  • Detection of errors in the databases
  • Dialogs for the settings concerning the preprocessing of databases

Bitmap image (e.g. scanned map of the city or map of the building) can be put in the background and the vector-defined buildings/walls can be drawn over the bitmap.
