Online Visualisation of a 3D City Model Using CityGML and X3DOM
2011 (English)In: Cartographica, ISSN 0317-7173, E-ISSN 1911-9925, Vol. 46, no 2, 109-114 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article proposes a novel framework for online visualization of 3D city models. CityGML is used to represent the city models, based on which 3D scenes in X3D are generated, then dynamically updated to the user side with AJAX and visualized in WebGL-supported browsers with X3DOM. The experimental results show that the proposed framework can easily be implemented using widely supported major browsers and can efficiently support online visualization of 3D city models in small areas. For the visualization of large volumes of data, generalization methods and multiple-representation data structure should be studied in future research.
