Summary/Abstract: The concept of city information modeling (CIM) has advanced for almost two decades with considerable conceptual, ontological, and instrumental advances in modeling. However, there are limitations to developing more realistic and complete models that are in line with the demands of urban management. This article aims to analyze from the socio-technical perspective of institutionalization real cases of cities that apply CIM models in their management and planning processes. Methodologically, it is a multiple case study based on bibliographic, documental, and gray literature analysis techniques on the implementation process of 21 CIM projects in different global contexts. The results show innovative analytical perspectives of CIM ecosystems based on the concepts of institutes and socio- technical systems of multiple orders; the potentialities of CIM applications are dependent on the rapid technological development and local training; and the limitations relate to the capacity of the public power to enable the application, incorporation, and implementation of practical solutions. The conclusion is that implementing 3D models of cities in urban management and planning can benefit local governments and serve as reinforcement in proportion as it overcomes preexisting practices that hinder innovation diffusion processes
