||3-D models and computer graphics with its visual characteristics enables
easier understanding of various information. Up until now 3-D models and computer
graphics has not been used for the analysis of city information due to its high cost and the
need for special techniques. Currently, we have discovered new technology in hyper
medium based on network technology and lower costs. This paper focuses on the
construction of an interactive and visual 3-D city information system, aiming at the ‘idea
processor’ for research and analysis of city planning and market research. We have
discovered the requirements necessary for the City Information Visualizer system. Using
this technology we will construct the prototype system of the 3-D City Information
Visualizer. This system is based on the personal computer and the Client/Server system.
The system is then applied to practical city analysis. This paper presents the prototype
system and its evaluation in a real project.
