OpenGlobus - an opensource JavaScript library for 3d maps

Dear, friends!

Openglobus is a javascript library that provides to display 3d maps. It’s designed to be simple, expandable, interactive and comfortable to use.

I’ll be happy to hear what you think and answer any questions about the library, feel free to make issues on github etc.

Hi Zemledelec,

your project Openglobus looks very promising! i just started playing around with it. :slight_smile:

What I currently miss:

  • Center view again (elevation + azimuth) with an icon like the zoom icons.
  • Markers with option to draw line to the ground, if they are in a certain height.
  • Layerswitcher and more tools for interaction already build in (like in Leaflet)
  • Zooming is somehow “slow”, especially on smartphone (should drop frames to keep timing if CPU is too slow)

But I am very pleased by Openglobus’ speed and feeling! Even on the smartphone zooming and changing elevation angle with two fingers is very intuitive.

Best regards,

Thank you Stefan! I try to make it friendly, even inside.

I’ve made issues for your requests:

Feel free to make issues in the github, I can not promise I’ll make soon, but some features are not so hard to implement.

I’m here, sorry, couldn’t reply. og is alive, and currently I’m using openglobus for unmanned traffic management system and making a simple tutorial how to visualize precise elevation data with og.
