Java games rock! Moovida too!

« Posted 2003-11-23 17:05:06 »

Hy folks, please remember that I'm rather new to all this, so please don't shoot at the pianoman.

I work on geographic information systems and I'm trying to create a GUI for hydrological models trying to leave a door open to future developments towards 3D flighthroughs in elevation models.

I've tried some demos and examples and I really like Xith!

The fact is that I need a visualization engine which in a first step of the development of the interface performs 2D raster visualization. Only in a second step 3D rendering will be implemented. Does it make some sense to use Xith for this? Is there even a possibility to do this?

It seems to me that jogl will get the new standard for GL bindings, so, since my project starts now, I would like to start with the most updated stuff.

Moreover Xith supplies a lot of documentation and examples, even if not in 2D (that's why I'm not really sure if it could work).

My dream would be to have a "false" 2D visualization, which could be dragged and twisted along axes and show what it really is: 3D.

Hope it was not to philosophic.
Every hint is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I think this can be done using Xith3D. Implementing a 2D application in 3D is quite common today.
