Building up Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) has been an important and actively followed topic in geo research for years. It’s also regarded in politics and by decision makers as leveraging technology for reducing time and cost in building up geo services for internal usage as well as for public information services. On the European level the new INSPIRE(More)
In order to generate 3D worlds in an automated way it is important to solve the problem of integrating existing 2D and 3D data automatically. We explain some of the issues of this problem in this paper. We also introduce mechanisms for automated generation of integrated 3D geo-data sets, as well as a prototype that implements these. It is necessary to(More)
In this paper we show how to efficiently integrate traditional GIS data into terrain models in order to generate complete 3D maps with little overhead for textures. The results meet the requirements for the Web 3D Service (W3DS), a proposal for the standardization for delivering 3D web maps. Our approach is designed to create fully vectorized 3D scenes that(More)
Digital Elevation Models (DEM) and 3D spatial data plays an important role in typical earth science applications. Numerous simulations, e.g. flood modeling, and spatial analysis, requires very exact terrain data. During the acquisition of these data, for an example by means of laserscanning, very large data sets results due to the high measuring point(More)
In this paper, a concept for developing and setting up virtual globes is discussed, which is based on principles of interoperable 3D spatial data infrastructures. Open geospatial industry standards for data and web services are merged with computer graphics technology to create a global coherent framework for accessing and displaying 3D assets.

The OGC OWS testbeds are conducted annually with partners from the industry, research institutes and universities. A Decision Support Scenario (DSS) has been designed for investigating the combination and usage of different OGC standard specification technologies such as a Web Map Service or Web 3D Service inside such a thread. The scenario comprises a(More)
One major benefit of multi-touch interaction is the possibility for passive observers to easily follow interactions of active users. This paper presents a novel system which allows remote users to perform collaborative multi-touch interaction in a remote face-to-face situation with shared virtual material seamlessly integrated in a videoconference(More)
