6. 3D Web Map Client¶
This is the documentation of the 3D Web Map Client version 1.9.
While developing the 3D web client, various extensions have been made to the Cesium Virtual Globe in order to facilitate users to view and explore 3D city models conveniently. The major one among those extensions is that the KML/glTF models exported using the Import/Export tool can now be directly visualized along with imagery and terrain layers within a web browser using the 3D web client, which additionally can link the KML/glTF models with table data exported using the Spreadsheet Generator Plugin (SPSHG) and allows querying the thematic data of every city object. With this newly introduced 3D web client, the functionalities of the 3DCityDB now range from high-efficient storage and management of virtual 3D city models according to the CityGML standard up to high-performance visualization and exploration of them on the web.
