Just one link for today: Nick Whitelegg has posted a bit more about his 3D OpenStreetMap viewer, which now has an overlay with place names. Useful if you’re trying to work out how to put some kind of text data on top of your 3D scene — anyone designing games could use similar techniques to do a heads-up display.
[UPDATE] Unfortunately Nick (like many people) was caught out by the API change, and so
this won’t work with the latest Firefox nightly build[UPDATE AGAIN: Nick's fixed it now] — thanks to aa in the comments for pointing that out. If you have pages of your own that you want to support both old and new browsers, don’t forget that you can use this compability code.
