Title: 3D web visualization


Url: http://3dwebgis.di.uminho.pt/wiki/


Geospatial 3D web visualization is almost a reality. It will be a reality, when we accomplish a web based 3D visualization, as smooth as the navigation in 2D. Extensive research has been done recently towards efficient visualization, either on the geospatial 3D data (improvements were done in the generalization of 3D objects; texture compression; efficient management of different LODs, etc) and on the 3D web visualization (WebGL support in browsers).
Since there are different approaches and different groups working towards geospatial 3D visualization, this workshop aims to join all interested researchers, under the following topics.


3D GIS topics

-Augmented and virtual reality

-BIM, DEM, data collection, model building

-Formats (CityGML, X3D, etc)

-3D support in spatial enabled DBMS

Web and mobile 3D visualization, interaction and analysis

-3D urban and landscape styling and presentation

-HTML5, WebGL, X3 DOM geospatial support

-Generalization, LOD management, tiling

-3D browser and mobile compatibility, performance and benchmarks

Geospatial 3D application areas

-Disaster management

-Navigation and simulation

-Urban planning

-Energy, solar irradiation, wind farms

-Network planning and transportation, wireless networks



Extended abstract, 2000 to 3000 words manuscript (about 6 pages). Papers will be reviewed by the program committee.
