Google Earth V4 Supports Collada - Open Standard for 3D Models

Does any one know how CityGML relates to this Collada standard.  It would be interesting to consider creating a Collada profile of CityGML.

Nokia, J2ME and location


Nokia has submitted JSR-293, Location API 2.0 to the Java Community Process (JCP). According to the JSR,

This specification defines an optional package that enables the developers to use new enhanced location-based features on the JavaTM ME devices. This API will be designed as an extension to JSR 179 Location API for JavaTM ME, and therefore must remain to be fully backwards compatible with applications using JSR 179. The scope of the API should include the following:

  1. Extended features of JSR 179:
    • Revise and supplement the features of JSR 179 based on the findings in JSR 179 implementations.
    • Add the ability to import and export landmarks with JavaTM application. JSR 179 only provides a mechanism to add and modify landmarks on the device, but with this addition, the landmarks and points of interest can be shared for example between two devices.
    • Clarify and extend the localization support for the landmarks
    • Specify a set of abstract landmark UI components for adding, editing and selecting landmarks. These components will be independent of the device manufacturer and will allow the user to have similar user experience on landmark handling across different devices and API implementations.
  2. Support for geocoding
  3. Map support
  4. Navigation support
