We are happy to introduce the new 3DCityDB-Web-Map-Client as latest component of the 3D City Database ecosystem. The 3DCityDB-Web-Map-Client is a Cesium-based 3D web viewer that allows for direct 3D visualization and interactive exploration of arbitrarily large semantic 3D city models based on datasets (KML/glTF modes + online spreadsheets) exported using the importer/exporter.

With this release, the license of the 3D City Database and all tools has been changed to Apache License, Version 2.0. See the LICENSE file for more details. Note that previous versions of the software continue to be licensed under GNU LGPL 3.0 license. To request a version before 3.3.0 under Apache License 2.0 create a GitHub issue.

Notable changes to the importer/exporter tool:

  • The 3DCityDB-Web-Map-Client is bundled with the importer/exporter and can be chosen to be installed during the installation process.
  • Java 8 is now required.
  • Completely revised and updated documentation.
  • Fixed bug that caused missing altitude mode in KML exports when choosing clamp to ground (#10).
  • Fixed bug with locale sensitive strings that caused the importer/exporter to not start correctly (#9).
  • Textures can now be embedded in glTF files (#7).
  • Direct upload of attribute data to Google Spreadsheet has been removed from the Spreadsheet Generator Plugin. This functionality might come back in future releases.

Notable changes to the database schema and procedures:

  • Added missing foreign key constraint from BRIDGE.ID to CITYOBJECT.ID (PostgreSQL)
  • The MIGRATION scripts for Oracle have been optimized to achieve a better performance.
  • Reworked all UPGRADE scripts.
  • Fixed CITYDB_PKG bugs under Oracle Locator.
  • Fixed issues in the DELETE package.
  • Removed delete_cityobject_cascade function from DELETE package.
  • Fixed CREATE_DB issues when SRID cannot be found.
  • Completely revised and updated documentation.
