*** Presented at State of the Map 2013 in Birmingham, UK ***
With the coverage of basic map features approaching completeness for well-mapped areas, mappers are looking for new challenges – so adding a third dimension to OpenStreetMap's data is an exciting idea. There are a wide range of potential applications, including not only traditional slippy maps, but also modelling software, simulations, or video games. In this session Tobias will give an overview of 3D information currently available in the OpenStreetMap database, explain how the open- source renderer OSM2World makes use of this data, and discuss the future of 3D mapping.
