Urban spaces consist of a complex collection of buildings, parcels, blocks and neighborhoods interconnected
by streets. Accurately modeling both the appearance and the behavior of dense urban spaces is a significant
challenge. The recent surge in urban data and its availability via the Internet has fomented a significant amount of
research in computer graphics and in a number of applications in urban planning, emergency management, and
visualization. In this article, we seek to provide an overview of methods spanning computer graphics and related
fields involved in this goal. Our article reports the most prominent methods in urban modeling and rendering,
