Battle of 3D Rendering Stacks: CesiumJS, VTS Geospatial or iTowns?
When you choose a 3D rendering stack to work with your 3D city model, your best options are open-source: CesiumJS, VTS Geospatial or iTowns. While it is not trivial to make a direct one-to-one comparison because each stack is built on slightly different philosophy, they all strive for the best possible performance. In this talk we will discuss the strong points of each stack and show a performance comparison between them carried out on the same data. Possibilities of interoperability and hybrid architectures will be also briefly covered.
An OSM-based 3D Street Map of the Earth
OSM has long since established itself as the leading global street database. Interactive multi-resolution 3D-globe-streaming technology has been around for quite some time. Yet little effort has been made so far to create a global OSM-based 3D street map. In this talk we will show how OSM, vector tiles and VTS Geospatial can work together to create a global 3D street map based purely on open data and on open-source technology. The crucial steps of data provisioning, 3D map design and visual styling will be elaborated.
