Three-dimensional CAD files of any area in the world, generated in minutes.
These files can save architecture and urban planning firms hours of routine data collection and drawing. All files are in the widely used DXF format
, and can be edited in design programs such as AutoCAD and Rhinoceros. Data is derived from OpenStreetMap
, the premier open source mapping project.
Usage of CAD Mapper is free
for areas up to 1 km2
, as well as for access to over 200 whole city CAD files

About the Data
All files are in Meters model units. Select "Meters" as the model unit when opening the file. The origin (0,0) of the coordinate system is placed at the bottom left of the area. DXF files can be opened in any program that also supports DWG files.
200+ Free Whole City Files
These are huge and simplified two-dimensional DXF files of metropolitan area road networks, which include 3 levels of roads as polylines, as well as bodies of water. The areas are the same as defined by Metro Extracts
These files may take some time to load. If you don't see the model initially in AutoCAD 2014, you need to recenter the view on the model. In the top left of the viewport, find [-][Top][2D Wireframe] and click [Top] and then Top again to recenter.
