Experimental 3D-Maps of Berlin, San Francisco, London, New York

Schickes Spielzeug: Stamen Design haben mit 3D-Daten und Kartenmaterial von Nokia Maps ein paar komplette 3D-Karten von Berlin, San Francisco, London und New York online gestellt, die im Browser laufen und die man einbetten und geobasiert verlinken kann. Sweet!

[Stamen Here] uses 3D data from HERE for San Francisco, New York, London, and Berlin to create city-wide 3D browsable maps, and it does this in the browser (though you’ll need a WebGL-enabled browser to see it). As in many of our other mapping projects, the urls change dynamically depending on location and other factors, and the data conforms, more or less, to the Tile Map Service specification. What this means, among other things, is that it’s not only possible to link to and embed these maps at specific locations and zoom levels, but that it’s easy.
