An Elevated Perspective: Introducing 3D Visualisations

Animation of 3D Map in Action

In an effort to look at things differently, from today SchemeStats.bike has a 3D option on the live map, accessible from a button in the bottom right of that screen.

Not only is this available for Dublin as previewed above, but also Belfast, Cork, Galway & Limerick:

Belfast

Cork

Galway

Limerick

Unfortunately, this is a desktop-only feature for the minute. Rotate by dragging with the left mouse button, move the map around by dragging with the right mouse button, and zoom in and out using the mouse wheel.

Check it out and let us know what you think:

This functionality has been made possible after leveraging the wonderful JavaScript 3D graphics library three.js. You can find it, along with lots of usage examples, at threejs.org.
