Abstract. Most commonly used detail type in 3D city modelling is building layer. One of the most important distinguishing point of buildings is independent sections. When the independent sections are examined in the context of Urban Information System (UIS), they have a multi-layered structure with their own characteristics. In address management processes, definition of the area belonging to a person, family or organization is realized through independent sections of buildings. In this study, it is aimed to model one the most important components of city objects such as building independent sections and road networks with GIS-based 3D modelling techniques. According to the results obtained from literature studies, answers were researched to the questions of what should be workflow of producing 3D models in the system and what should be in ideal 3D GIS database. Buildings and building independent sections were geocoded to provide some additional innovations to address mapping methods. Procedural modelling method was preferred as a GIS-based 3D modelling technique. Created models enable both the visualization of address data and their transfer to the 3D environment, as well as navigation. It provides some practical information. The designed system has been tested practically in Trabzon city.
