About 3DHOP

3DHOP (3D Heritage Online Presenter) is an open-source framework for the creation of interactive Web presentations of high-resolution 3D models, oriented to the Cultural Heritage field. 3DHOP target audience ranges from the museum curators with some IT experience to the experienced Web designers who want to embed 3D contents in their creations, from students in the CH field to small companies developing web applications for museum and CH institutions.

3DHOP allows the creation of interactive visualization of 3D models directly inside a standard web page, just by adding some HTML and JavaScript components in the web page source code. The 3D scene and the user interaction can be easily configured using a simple "declarative programming" approach. By using a multi-resolution 3D model management 3DHOP is able to work with high-resolution 3D models (hundreds millions of triangles/points) with ease, also on low-bandwidth. 3DHOP does not need a specialized server, nor server-side computation: simply some space on a web server, and does work directly inside modern web browsers, no plug-ins or additional components are necessary.
