"A coverage of complete 3D cities in 4 inch resolution can be realized now with a substantial cost reduction and viewed on the Internet with Bitmanagement's fast 3D viewer technology", says Peter Schickel, CEO of Bitmanagement and vice president of the Web3D consortium.

3D city models can be integrated into many applications ranging from online search engines to embedded automotive navigation- and entertainment systems. (Please see Web3D featured case study at

For fast visualization of large city datasets online, Bitmanagement's software now supports the latest X3D geospatial profile from the X3D-Earth initiative as well as the geolocation node from the Collada 1.5.0 specification announced today by the Khronos consortium. Bitmanagement enables the growing demand for Interactive Web3D Software for the mass market as 3D graphic cards are available widely throughout the homes of over one billion consumers who are connected to the Internet today. Leading brand names in all major industry segments from automotive to 3D multi-user communities have been won (please see below at About Bitmanagement).

Bitmanagement's main product is the highly performing 3D viewer BS Contact based on the ISO standards VRML/X3D and the industry standard Collada and Google's KMZ, used in applications worldwide and downloaded in the millions. Especially for serving international markets in USA, Europe and Asia, the software has been adapted to support UTF8/16 text characters for localization of customer applications, e.g. for Chinese or Hebrew text symbols. Customized OEM applications with more than 100.000 users in the first week after its online launch proves that interactive web 3D with photorealistic quality reached main stream market.
