Visualizing Large 3D city models in the Web

In this 1.5h tutorial that I gave at the Web3D 2014 conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada I presented different tools to prepare large geospatial data sets (in particular 3D city models), so they can be visualized in the Web.

The presentation starts with a motivating example explaining how 3D city models in the Web can help urban planners and decision makers to present their policy plans to the public to engage all stakeholders in the planning process.

Most of the talk consisted of a live demo where I actually converted a large CityGML model to X3D to put it into the web browser using WebGL/X3DOM.
