I’m working on the integration of different GIS-related services into a single unified application for my masters thesis and have been picking up where I left off on Betaville and its OSM capabilities. (It loads the data, makes some pretty scruffy looking geometry out of it, and can then render it in real-time as well as export it to COLLADA or OBJ)

Below are a few short videos of me letting off some creative steam while playing with the data.

Triangulation is done courtesy of Java Topology Suite (JTS), which may be the coolest library ever written… with the exception of jME ;)
