Research Abstract: 

Current routing systems in GIS software mostly provide routes that allow the users to navigate between source and destination points in 2 dimensions. This paper describes the development of a web-based 3D routing system for a university campus  using Open Source Software (OSS) and Open Specifications (OS). The system  uses the advantages of interoperability and allows the integration and extension of  different system components. A data model is described and the process of creating  the data model and the migration of the data stored in dxf architectural drawings to  the data model are explained. The paper also discusses the architecture and the  interaction of the different prototype components such as 3D viewer, database, and  programming languages. Furthermore, it describes customized tools that were developed to provide the users a simple interface to interact with the system through a  standard internet browser.
