DS Improve has used Unity3D to produce a 3D interactive web demo of the historical Sablon area in Brussels.
The Sablon's place is a touristic area in Brussels (Belgium/Europe), known for its old antique dealers, luxury chocolate shops and restaurants.
From your web-browser (Mac or Windows), you can walk around the "Notre-Dame des Victoires" church (a gothic church from the XVth century) and navigate in front of typical ancient houses. The reconstructed area was optimized for web-display and real-time performance on entry-level NVidia and ATI GPUs. We started from a higher quality model that was running in our custom stand-alone and immersive 3D engine (Haeva) and we adapted it to run on web using the Unity3D technology.
The virtual reconstruction of the area in 3D was based on urban plans and aerial pictures. Precise measurements and high-definition textures were gathered on-site. The task was not easy because this is a popular touristic area with a lot of people walking around during the day. Also a part of the church was under renovation at the time.
This virtual reconstruction is a technological demonstration of the interactive and real-time quality we can deliver on-web to our customers in the architectural domain. We use the same technology to aid in the decision-making process for architectural projects during their integration in existing urban areas.
You will find more information on our dedicated IMMO3D web-page.
You can try the interactive 3D demo here. Recent NVidia or ATI GPU (>2007) strongly recommended to have real-time performances !
