Bitmanagement, a leader in interactive real-time 3D software on the Internet, and directing board member of the Web3D ISO standard consortium today announced that they will reveal at this years computer graphics event Siggraph2008 in Los Angeles, USA, the visualization of automatically constructed 3D cities with their 3D viewer BS Contact.

“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.”, said Peter Schickel, CEO of
Bitmanagement and vice president of the Web3D

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
