3MAP - milestone 6.

public beta

Public beta

  • Client application
    • Capable of running on broadband networks, on existing customer premises equipment
    • Capable of reading from and writing to a geospatial database

  • Server Application
    • Capable of storing and retrieving geospatial data input by users of the client application


  • Pentium 4, 1GHz
  • 512 MB RAM
  • ATI 9600, 9700 or 9800-based 3D graphics card (GeForce 5600 or better should also work)
  • BS Contact 6.1 VRML Browser
  • Broadband internet connection

The public beta has been superseded - try version 1.0

The beta may work to a greater or lesser degree on other graphics hardware. If experiencing difficulties, press F9 to bring up the BS Contact preferences, and try turning off various options in the OpenGL and Performance options tabs.

The beta may work in VRML/X3D browsers other than BS Contact. However users of Cosmo Player and Cortona should be aware that these browsers will attempt to load the entire planetary texturemap, so you may experience performance difficulties, texture memory overload, and the occasional system crash.

Users meeting the requirements listed above should be able to run the beta at a usable performance level. If you experience any problems or bugs, please report them to us.
