ANNOUNCEMENT: 360 VR as web app on ArcGIS Online

Dear CityEngine Community

With the release of ArcGIS CityEngine 2021.0, 360 VR is now available as a web application based on the latest WebXR technology. This means that you no longer need to obtain Oculus store keys and download the native mobile application to your device.

You can simply use the web browser that comes with your XR device to view 3VR experiences. In addition, you can also view them on desktop and mobile platforms.

To try it out, head over to, where we provide three featured experiences which can be found on top of the gallery: the updated Redlands redevelopment plan, a new Pasadena redevelopment project, and a detailed architectural project with a number of outdoor / indoor viewpoints. Previously exported experiences will continue to work in the web application without any changes required.

Learn more about ArcGIS 360 VR in our release blog article (

The CityEngine 2021.0 documentation provides help with exporting 3VR experiences ( and how to use the ArcGIS 360 VR web application (

We will provide additional resources in the coming weeks and look forward to your feedback. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.

The CityEngine team




Simply love it! It works so well with different scenes designed for Story Maps. Are there any plans for more free movement controlls within a scene or navigation points with click-info? Also, willl the code be available at for more web design options like combining POI with 360 videos and images?
