The 52°North 3D Community was initiated in the Autumn of 2010. A basic executable version of Triturus (version 1.1) will be provided at the beginning of 2011. The Maven2 build framework will serve as the technological basis to manage the underlying source code. After a short pilot phase, in Summer 2011, a Triturus redesign phase will take place. Triturus version 2 should be available at the end of 2011.
Innovative research in the context of Triturus 2 might include topics such as:
- (Partial) GeoAPI integration,
- WebGL-based HTML5 renderer realization,
- Provision of 3D PDF output,
- Spatio-temporal "(3+1)D" visualization.
