How can I get the application?
You can check out the source code (Java and JavaServer Pages) from this 52°North Subversion Repository: https://svn.52north.org/svn/3d
An anonymous check-out is supported! (Note that a 52°North account is required if you want to contribute code.)
Note that the service URLs given in the documentation are no longer available. (Please request the 52°North 3d team if you are interested in a productive service URL.)
We will provide updated specifications as well as English translations soon.
