3D GeoInfo Conference

  1. 1. Geomatics Laboratory Como Campus Participatory GIS: experimentations for a social 3D virtual globe Maria Antonia Brovelli, Marco Minghini, Giorgio Zamboni Politecnico di Milano, DICA – Geomatics Laboratory at Como Campus
  2. 2. Virtual globes 2 ✔ Virtual globes ➔ software allowing to explore the Earth in three dimensions while streaming satellite imagery, elevation and other data from the Internet ➔ user freedom to move around the globe and interact with it ➔ multi-disciplinary, multi-resolution and multi-dimensional (even 4D) ➔ context capability, ease of use, realistic user experience ➔ growing popularity due to increased Internet availability of geospatial data (e.g. aerial and satellite imagery, topographic maps and DTMs) Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  3. 3. Virtual globes ✔ Many of them are available Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus 3
  4. 4. Virtual globes ✔ Many of them are available Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus 4
  5. 5. NASA World Wind 5 ✔ NASA's virtual globe ➔ http://goworldwind.org ➔ free and open source under NASA Open Source Agreement (NOSA) license ➔ Java Software Development Kit (SDK) ➔ multi-platform (Java: “Write once, run anywhere”) ➔ 3D Web visualization as Java Application, Java Applet or Java Web Start Application ➔ based on open standards, accommodates any desired data format ✔ Main features ➔ accuracy control of horizontal (texture) and vertical (DTM) components ➔ upload layers from OGC-compliant WMS servers ➔ default WMS layers (i.e. satellite imagery and DTMs) from NASA and USGS ➔ 2D objects (e.g. lines and polygons) and 3D objects (e.g. parallelepipeds and spheres) can be placed on the globe or in its surroundings Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  6. 6. PoliCrowd 6 ✔ PoliCrowd is a Web-based 3D Participatory GIS application ➔ born to promote tourism and cultural heritage ➔ interaction with user mobile devices for uploading Points Of interest (POIs) ➔ POIs three-dimensional visualization on World Wind virtual globe ➔ user collaborative contribution in POIs characterization ➔ creating, saving and sharing customized maps with the community http://geomobile.como.polimi.it/policrowd Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus

  16. 16. 3D data visualization 16 ✔ Points Of Interest (POIs) 3D visualization on top of World Wind ➔ 3 Levels Of Detail according to the altitude of the point of view on the globe ✔ ✔ first LOD: representation of all the POIs with a common icon (i.e. a pin) Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  17. 17. 3D data visualization 17 ✔ Points Of Interest (POIs) 3D visualization on top of World Wind ➔ 3 Levels Of Detail according to the altitude of the point of view on the globe ✔ ✔ second LOD: representation of POIs with icons showing their category Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  18. 18. 3D data visualization 18 ✔ Points Of Interest (POIs) 3D visualization on top of World Wind ➔ 3 Levels Of Detail according to the altitude of the point of view on the globe ✔ ✔ third LOD: representation of POIs with icons showing their classification Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  19. 19. 3D data visualization 19 ✔ Querying Points Of Interest ➔ clickable POIs placemarks ➔ visualization of Android ODK Collect-reported information in a balloon Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus

  22. 22. User interaction with POIs 22 ✔ Add/edit comments and multimedia contents (registered users only) Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  23. 23. Adding WMS layers 23 ✔ Adding layers from available WMS servers ➔ users have to enter a valid WMS server URL and then select from the list the desired layer(s) ➔ all the WMS layers added to a PoliCrowd projec feed a catalogue available for the whole community Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  24. 24. Creating/saving projects 24 ✔ Creation of a new PoliCrowd project ➔ registered users can create a new project, entering a name and a description ✔ Saving a PoliCrowd project ➔ storage of the current layers, the position (i.e. latitude, longitude and altitude) and the camera orientation of the point of view over the globe ✔ Visualization of user-created projects ➔ all the created project feed a catalogue available for the whole community ➔ the catalogue keeps trace of the project owner ➔ all users can visualize PoliCrowd projects ➔ project owners have also editing options available Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus
  25. 25. Projects catalogue ✔ Visualization of user-created projects Geomatics Laboratory, Politecnico di Milano – Como Campus 25
