Software for generating the 3D BAG

For creating the 3D BAG we wrote bag3d, which is an application that uses 3dfier for extruding the building footprints to LoD1 models. It is designed to run regularly as an automated process (eg. with a cron job), hence keeping the 3D BAG in line with the BAG updates. It is a multithreaded application, and it can process the whole Netherlands in a reasonable amount of time.

In short, the bag3d application can:

Although bag3d was made for the Dutch BAG data set (as its name implies), it started out as a more generic application, batch3dfier. Keeping the original spirit, we wrote an extensive documentation for bag3d so hopefully it will be is easier to adapt bag3d to other data sets.
