3-D model for generating Winter and Summer panoramas
Panoramic maps have been so far displayed mainly as drawn by hand. Of course as a consequence you could show the area only from one perspective. In order to gain flexibility of the presentation, a high-resolution 3-D model was created based on Swisstopo-Daten (Federal Office of Topography). In combination with detailed textures for the Summer and Winter season (streets, buildings, forests etc.), a groundwork was done to enable generation of panoramic maps from every required angle. These will be offered on site both online for integration of live data and offline to ensure orientation of the user on the various information screens and displays.
