From the folks from MapZen who make much more cool stuff: “Tangram is a library for rendering 2D & 3D maps with WebGL, using GeoJSON/TopoJSON or binary vector tiles.”
“The aim of the project is to create a lightweight 3D library with a very low level of complexity — in other words, for dummies. The library provides <canvas>, <svg>, CSS3D and WebGL renderers.”
W3DS (Web 3D Service) is a portrayal service for 3D scenes. Early OGC discussion documents.
Now superseded by the 3DPS, the 3D Portrayal Service, now (jan 2015) out for public comment in OGC.
This is an early W3DS implementation in GeoServer that started from the dissertation work by Nuno Miguel Carvalho Oliveira (professor: Jorge Gustavo Rocha) at the University of Minho (Portugal).
“A simple viewer built around OpenSceneGraph … designed to listen to commands on its standard input. …
The other piece is a Python plugin that is used to connect QGIS signals to the viewer (in another process) to allow loading of QGIS layers with 3D geometries.”
Again By OSLandia, watch these guys!
“Cuardo is an OpenSource WebGL 3D data viewer, focusing on urban data analysis and visualization….a 3D GIS web framework based on Three.js and WebGL, oriented toward urban visualization.“
Suggestions from Readers
After the first version I got quite some suggestions. Thanks!
“G3M is a framework developed and designed to:
- Develop mobile maps apps in 2D, 2,5D and 3D
- Work with real time data
- Integrate any kind of data (format,size)
- Be integrated on any legacy system
- High performance mobile native development
- Multi Touch screens
- Face the problem of the mobile performance as an integrated problem between server & client
Works on iOS, Android devices and HTML5 environments
