CartoConsult has added a subscription service that delivers smart 3D building and city models via live web streaming to any internet connected device.
Using Cesiumjs, a cross-platform open architecture, dynamic-data visualisation package which requires no plug-in to run in a web browser, CartoConsult believes the new web streaming capability will significantly boost the appeal of applying 3D capability to projects.
Potential users such as urban planners, developers and engineers will no longer need special software to view the models. The data is still fully compatible with GIS, CAD and other mapping software with 3D capabilities, but it is no longer a requirement for viewing the data.
