San Carlos 3D - Virtual Tour

San Carlos 3D

Hello, I create this topic to post here news of this project made by Informatic división of Municipality of Concordia, Entre Ríos Argentina.

In this Project tried to recréate one of the most representative tourist attractions of our city, San Carlos’s castle . The aim of this simulation is to show (based on historical data) the castle before the incident that left it in ruins using Babylon JS as framework 3D.

It’s a free service and it’s available on San Carlos 3D

The idea of ​​the project is to make a tour of the Castle in first person, while showing the history of it, available in 4 languages ​​(English, Spanish, French and Portuguese).

In this topic i will post the progress and improvements of project

Hola, creo este tópico para mostrar avances sobre el proyecto llevado a cabo por la Dirección de Informática de la Municipalidad de Concordia, Entre Ríos Argentina.

Proyecto en el cual se intenta recrear uno de los atractivos más representativo de la ciudad, el Castillo San Carlos, mostrando cómo se veía en el pasado antes de que convertirse en ruinas utilizando Babylon JS como framework 3D.

Está disponible como servicio gratuito accediendo a la sitio San Carlos 3D

La idea del proyecto es realizar un recorrido por el Castillo en primera persona, a la vez que se muestra la historia sobre el mismo, Disponible en 4 idiomas (inglés, español, francés y portugués).

En este tópico se notificará sobre los avances y mejoras del proyecto
