Abstract. application various different visualization schemes are conceivable. This paper presents a multi-layer based visualization method, enabling fast data browsing of mobile mapping data. In contrast to systems like Google Street View the proposed visualization does not base on 360° panoramas, but on colored point clouds projected on partially translucent images. Those images are rendered as overlapping textures, preserving the depth of the recorded data and still enabling fast rendering on any kind of platform. Furthermore the proposed visualization allows the user to inspect the mobile mapping data in a panoramic fashion with an immersive depth illusion using the parallax scrolling technic.
