VTS 3D Geospatial Software Stack

Since 2012, Melown Technologies has specialized in mass-scale computer vision-based modeling of urban and natural landscapes from aerial imagery. As a major part of this process, we have developed an advanced 3D visualization technology which allows interactive web-based rendering of these landscapes, from street-level details to the planetary scale.

The rendering stack, codenamed VTS, has since been extended to include a native C++ implementation and massively powerful server-side data integration functionality. VTS is not a mere JS library and not a mere geospatial data server; rather, it is a fully integrated rendering and visualization stack providing everything needed to travel the long road from server-side data storage to the client browser or desktop.

The entire Melown VTS stack is open source under the BSD 2-clause license. It comprises six main projects with over 20 supporting repositories. These include web and desktop rendering engines and C++-based backend components integrating various types of geospatial data. These components allow you to operate a unique full-stack 3D visualization platform on your own infrastructure.

The VTS 3D documentation is available on separate website. Or have look at our showcases.
