GeoTouchSensorExample.x3d

(.x3d scene, pretty-print source, statistics, info & logs, X3DOM Player)

This example shows the use of the GeoTouchSensor in order to retrieve the geographic coordinate that the user is pointing to. The scene displays a model of the earth built using a GeoElevationGrid, it then displays a red sphere at the point on the earth where the user is pointing to with the mouse, and also displays the latitude, longitude, and elevation at that point as a text label.
