Berlin Development Plans in 3D

Last year Berliners had the chance to vote on plans to develop Tempelhofer Feld, the site of the old Templehof Airport. Before the vote the Berliner Morgenpost created a very nice 3d map of the development plans (the development plans were defeated so this visualization is a little out of date now but it still well worth a look).

The Berliner Morgenpost used ViziCities to create 3d map of Tempelhofer Feld and how the site might be developed. Was Wo Gebaut Werden Sol mapped the planned areas of development within Templehofer Feld. The map menu allows you to view the various sites with the park. When you select a site from the menu the map provides a really neat 3d pan from your current viewpoint to the selected location.

The map uses WebGL for the 3d fly overs of the park. However the map also degrades well on non-WebGL enabled browsers. If you view the map on a non-WebGL enabled browser you miss out on the 3d flyovers of the park but you still get to see each location on the map.
