Web3D city modeling competition
A competition for the best browser-based 3D rendering of a citySubmission Deadline April 15, 2015
PRIZE: The winner will receive financial support (500$) and free registration to attend the 20th International Web3D 2015 Conference on Web3D Technology
in Heraklion, Crete Greece 18-21 June 2015.
- Open Software solution to stream a large 3D city model including textured buildings, terrain, sensor, and model data.
- The Solution should be a browser based Web Service.
- The client side should be able to select individual features (a building) and display further information about the selected feature.
- The Web Service and the streaming protocol have to be documented and open.
- For the streaming, an existing data format such as X3DOM, XML3D, and KML can be used; other open solutions will also be accepted.
- Streaming should not be a “black box” and should enable interoperability.
- All Competitors must use the same source data of Rotterdam City
- CityGML data files for Rotterdam
- Terrain data from ETOPO or local terrain model
- Any freely accessible data (water level, weather forecast, or other sensor/model data)
- Maps and other features can be added on top of the terrain. These can be integrated as OGC Services.
Criteria for judging will be based on:
- Creativity in addressing a use case,
- Loading performance,
- Interactive performance,
- Diversity of data rendered,
- Interoperability and openness of the solution
