Itowns v2.2 released!

 

We have the pleasure of announcing the release of iTowns v2.2! Itowns is a Three.js-based framework written in Javascript/WebGL for visualizing 3D geospatial data right into the browser, developed and maintained by Oslandia, IGN and AtolCD.

In this release, you will find a lot of bug fixes and performance improvements. Notably, the npm package is now working 🙂 Some new demos have also been added.

Useful features have been added too! Including:

  • The ability to change the opacity and color of a PointCloud
  • For PointCloud layers, you can now hook your customization code on a onPointsCreated callback
  • Panorama display support (drag to rotate the camera!):
  • A new provider – the static provider – has been added. It allows to serve tiles directly from the filesystem (from a metadata file in JSON containing a list of images URL and associated extent) without having to install a full WMS or WMTS server. It is very useful in development phase, or for small amount of tiles.
  • The ability to filter features from a WFS layer
  • Extrusion support for WFS layers
  • It is now possible to override the material of generated meshes from a 3dtile layer
  • Opacity is now supported for vector layers (3dTiles and WFS)
  • Touch capable display device are now supported in FirstPersonControls, PanoramicControls and FlyControls
  • Early collision detection support is now supported in some controls
  • And last but not least, IE11 support has been added

Please download it on the project release page and don’t forget to have a look at the Breaking Changes section.
