1. First steps¶
The 3D City Database comes with SQL scripts for setting up an instance of the relational schema on a spatial database system (Oracle Spatial/Locator or PostgreSQL/PostGIS) and with a database loading and extracting tool called Importer/Exporter. Installers are available for download at http://www.3dcitydb.org. The source code of the 3D City Database project is hosted on https://github.com/3dcitydb. Please follow the instructions on the next pages to complete a proper installation.
The individual components of the 3D City Database are also available as images for the Docker virtualization technology. This makes it possible to install and configure a 3D City Database with a single command line statement in almost any runtime environment. See Section 1.5 for more details.
