Agency9 Adds 3D Gaming Effects to Web-based GIS and Planning
Agency9 CityPlanner, the unique web service for 3D visualisation now releases support for 3D rendering effects such as real time shadow mapping, ambient occlusion, atmospheric scattering and god rays. These effects, traditionally only seen in high-end video games, elevate even the most simple 3D-model and city model to an astounding visually level and enables shadow studies for planners.
This confirms CityPlanner as the ideal tool for intelligent 3D-GIS visualisation with the combination of a powerful 3D engine and support for traditional GIS data sources and standards such as KMZ, WMS, GeoTiff, ESRI Shape and more.
Agency9 CityPlanner is a web based service for 3D visualization of projects within urban development, infrastructure and energy. CityPlanner is unique in providing 3D web planning tools for widespread access and collaboration. It is created for urban planners, communicators, consultants and GIS technicians to easily create, share and publish project and spatial information from a normal web browser. CityPlanner is currently used by municipalities internationally in their daily work with master and local planning, also involving stakeholders and citizens in the planning process by enabling web publishing of 3D plan visualisations.
“We are very pleased to announce these exciting features that continue to strengthen the position of Agency9 CityPlanner as the premier 3D visualisation tool for the web. CityPlanner is continuously evolving by being developed in close cooperation with the users to ensure that the product supports their workflows and requirements without compromising user experience and usability”, said Johan Göransson, Product manager.
