For demonstrating the usage of the height information and the diversity of the indoorOSM model, a prototypical 3D application has been developed. It provides the same functionality
(visualization and routing) as the 2D application here, but due to 3D, routes can be better visualized and consumed. The 3D application is based on XML3D and should work in all new browsers (except
Internet Explorer). So if you do not see the 3D model, you might have to install the latest version of your browser.
The application features two control modes: 3D Indoor Examination and 3D Indoor Walk
This map aims at demonstrating the power and diversity of an indoor-extended OpenStreetMap (IndoorOSM). The map visualizes a profile of the building and allows the selection of individual levels (floors) inside the building (by using the level selector at the bottom top). Each level is depicted as a floorplan, whereby buildingparts such as rooms, corridors, vertical buildingparts (elevators, escalators, stairways) are displayed as colored polygons. In contrast, doors are visualized as small circular dots between the corresponding buildingparts. The meaning of the colors for the different buildingparts is depicted in the legend on the bottom right.
The indoorOSM project uses collaboratively collected geodata from OpenStreetMap. If you want to contribute indoor-spatial data, you have to map a building according to the indoorOSM model. At the moment, the indoorOSM database is not updated regularly, thus if you contribute indoor data to OSM, please send us a short notification. After receiving this note, we will integrate your building in the indoorOSM application.
