Germanium Developer Network

Start here if you are creating web pages that use GermaniumWeb. You can learn technical details needed to use the GermaniumWeb plugin in your application.


What is the GermaniumWeb API?

The GermaniumWeb API enables you to add 3D building functionality on your web page.

More precisely, the API enables your JavaScript to use the GermaniumWeb plugin. It is the plugin that allows you to embed a 3D building complex on your web page, in a manner analogous to the Adobe Flash Player1 plugin enabling you to embed videos.

Visitors to your website will need to install the GermaniumWeb plugin to view 3D building scenes. Again, this is analogous to the requirement to install the Flash Player plugin to view Flash videos.

Examples of applications you can build using the GermaniumWeb API are building directories, CCTV visualization systems, tenant management systems, and asset tracking systems.

Any examples I can try out?
