Abstract: Georeferenced data is becoming increasingly more available through open source licenses. In this paper, an approach is explained to build a real-time interactive 3D virtual world using the Unity 3D engine by using the freely available OpenStreetMaps data. This virtual environment can serve as a base for the visualisations of spatial and georeferenced data. By making use of OpenStreetMaps this virtual environment can be kept up to date with changes in the world. This paper provides an introduction to OpenStreetMaps, discusses some of the challenges and provides examples how to process this data in order to generate a virtual environment.
