Just seen an excellent real-time 3D map of Openstreetmap, the F4 map.

A really nice map fully dragable, change angles, etc in real time 3D. With excellent touches the animated cranes on the construction site and ships sailing. Probably my favourite OSM map.

Now that makes me want to properly map 3D buildings.

Anyone got any good examples of citys/areas which have the good 3D data?

Edited to add: PARIS http://map.f4-group.com/#lat=48.8494576&lon=2.3360330&zoom=18&camera.theta=71.946&camera.phi=42.915 If this is what the imported data quality there is no issue over quality, it's fantastic. and wow http://map.f4-group.com/#lat=48.8662960&lon=2.3125869&zoom=19&camera.theta=71.946&camera.phi=65.833

I don't understand where the Grand Palais structure comes from (in your last link). This is very advanced 3D mapping, and looking at the data, I can't see any special tag... Does someone know more about that?

Oh, I just read in their wiki:

"Special" buildings

We're using a proprietary modeled building database (check the Eiffel Tower) transfered as a binary form. They can be disabled using the "F4 specific buildings" button in the graphic options window.


It's a shame they don't give us more information about the source!

Yea quite nice effects.. you can see more details when appending &camera.zoomMax=22 to the url. Add &watcher.send=false to not send your current position to their tracker (check the numer of active websockets ;) The building models are made by their studio and it seems to be unlikely that they will share them independent from the map.

of course they could just guess the viewed position by tile requests. I guess the watcher is for some 'social interaction' thing later on. A while ago it was possible to enable the receiver part to follow the camera of other users, quite cool if one would ask to agree and select the person to share..

There's a few more example areas of varying quality listed here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Simple_3D_Buildings#Demo_areas
