Jungfraubahnen 3D model – winter- and summer-panoramas for displaying live-data.
Up until today, panoramic maps are still painted by hand. It is a beautiful and fascinating craft but it leaves you with a single point of view on the region. That is why for jungfrau.ch, we decided to build up a 3D-model so we can be as flexible as it gets in generating panoramic views.
Based on data from Swisstopo (via the Bundesamt für Landestopografie) we created a high-res 3D-model of the Jungfrau region.
In combination with custom textures for summer and winter (streets, buildings, forests, rocks, lakes and rivers…) we created a foundation that enables us to generate panoramic maps for each desired point of view.
The panoramic views are used online in combination with all kind of live-information as well as offline on the infopoints and displays in situ.
