Jersey 3D model

About the Jersey 3D model

Our 3D model has been created using aerial photography and ground level photo surveys. It provides easy access to a visual representation of St Helier and other parts of the Island. You can use it to assess the impact of heights, orientation and design on a site or surrounding area.

The 3D model consists of:

  • terrain
  • buildings with roof textures and façade textures (St Helier only)
  • vegetation canopy
  • walls and fences

Our model allows planning officers to analyse proposed developments in greater detail. By animating a proposed development in 3D we can view it from a range of aspects, including:

  • ground level
  • mid height
  • bird's eye view
  • time of day or year (shadowing analysis)

Jersey 3D also makes it easier for you to understand the future of your local area and major Island developments. You can view a planning applications in 3D and have your say on the planning and building application register.

The potential for Jersey 3D is greater than just development assessment. It can be used for industry, government and education.

3D model coverage

The 3D model of St Helier covers other parts of the Island. Over time all buildings will eventually be captured in 3D. You can see which buildings are currently available in 3D by viewing the key map.

Planning requirements

Applications for new developments for buildings over 200 square meters usually require a 3D model as part of a planning application. Proposed 3D models must also be incorporated to the Jersey's 3D model.

Technical guidance for submitting 3D models

Access to the model

If you are an architect or developer with a current mapping license you can have full access to all of the 3D model data.

If you are not a mapping license holder and would like to access the 3D model data, contact one of our commercial business partners.

Commercial business partners

You can view the 3D model at the Customer and Local Services (La Motte Street) or on the planning and building application register.
