MayaArch3D: 2D and 3D Visualization and Analysis Platform
A central goal of the MayaArch3D project is to provide archaeologists with a research platform for the spatio-temporal visualization and analysis of 2D and 3D data over the World Wide Web. To do this we are developing a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS).
The client side of our application builds on top of the open-source geomajas 2D web GIS framework and consists of three central components. First, an interface for working with 2D data from different sources and formats. Second, a georeferenced3D scene to explore landscapes, settlements and buildings. The georeferenced coordinate system in this scene allows the combination of additional geodata (e.g. raster overlays, user defined vector data or map services). And third, a viewer which allows for the study of single 3D objects in higher resolutions.
Both 3D components support the user’s interaction with models and provide an analysis toolset and access to the attribute information from the databases.
