Another great “third-party” show-case. This one is from Steve Smith. There are some texture-issues and therefore it only works in Firefox 4.0 beta right now. The scene is Bristol City Harbour although the scenario fictitious. It is being prepared as a proof of principal for using x3dom/web3d to represent thematic data on climate change in cities.
The model uses 25cm aerial photography draped on a much thinned LIDAR digital terrain model provided by the British National Rivers Authority (NRA). The overall project is : Suburban Neighbourhood Adaptation for a Changing Climate (SNACC) at the University of the West of England.
