Mapgets – the online 3d map application platform

Mapgets – the online 3d map application platform

The Mapgets online 3D map application platform was released on 26.8.2015. The open application development platform utilizes Meshmoon technology, and aims to make development of geospatial applications easier, and more cost efficient.

Results

The Mapgets platform can be utilized for publishing and sharing geospatial data from the urban environment. By using existing interfaces, the model of the environment is generated automatically from available data, increasing the cost efficiency. With the latest online visualization technology, 3D city model becomes the platform for all data.

With mapgets, the developers can easily build and publish applications that operate on top of the 3D city model.

Open source technologies have been utilized in the Mapgets platform. These have been developed in several research projects, including the EUE project.  Mapgets is a joint venture of Adminotech and FCG City Portal Ltd.
