Currently, the new generation of geo-browsers such as Google Maps, Google Earth, and Microsoft Virtual Earth have been utilized by the people for their daily life and also decision making. Even though all of these geo-browsers have provide 3D capability but it’s still limited for hilly area only. Due to this situation, this prototype was develop to enables more details visualization of 3D terrain in a web environment. The prototype is developed by using game engine which is Unity 3D. Unity 3D is a multi-platform game creator, thus allowed user to deploy their application in many platform such as PC, web and mobile. Three main processes involved in this prototype, which are terrain data management, 3D terrain visualizer and networking management. In the first phase, original terrain data from client is uploaded through online and then managed by admin of the system to convert it into GIS compatible format. The second phase is carried out by development of 3D terrain visualizer. During this phase, the compatible terrain data from the client is loaded into system, and then it can be visualized in 3D environment with terrain analysis features such as slope detection, z face detection, color shading, and grey color shading. By utilizing multi-user networking system available in game engine, it’s enable the 3D terrain visualizer to be work online and allow real-time interaction. The advantage of this prototype is that it’s allow several clients to access a data simultaneously. The client can interact among themselves to discuss about the 3D terrain that their visualized. This prototype can help environmental control, including visualization of direction of runoff water and aids Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), improve farm layout, boost tourism and assist the policy makers for future planning.
