How to Draw a 3D City Map Bird’s Eye View Step by Step:

1:To draw each building, you only need to draw the top of the roof!

2: Add some chimneys to give a feeling of scale

3: Add tone to one side of each roof, I use hatching and crosshatching; shading with parallel lines

4: The last step is to add dark shadows to one side of each building, these are important as they give the impression of the shape and size of the buildings.

For this drawing I just made the shapes up, as it was easier that way.
