3D Superski
3D Superski now as interactive ski map on mobile devices

The largest ski resort in Italy continues to work with high-resolution 3D technology by 3D Reality Maps. Alongside the existing 3D map online, and right on time for the start of the new ski season, 3D Superski is now available as a mobile phone app. With a new design, visitors can easily find information on the best slopes or ski lift opening hours right on their tablet or smartphone. The app can be downloaded from the app store free of charge, and is compatible with iPhones, iPads and android devices. An additional Pro version can be added to the app, which allows you to draw and record your ski courses on the slopes.


The new 3D ski maps give you an accurate view on all the slopes in the 12 skiing areas, including detailed information on the level of difficulty, the skier’s location (thanks to the GPS system), the uphill lift facilities, where the snowparks and huts are and a lot more besides! The ‘Ski Routenplaner’ function allows you to plan your route or your skiing day. Simply insert arrival and destination and your smartphone will calculate the quickest or most ideal route on the 1,200 km of Dolomiti Superski slopes. The ‘Ski Tracking’ function allows you to record your route or your skiing day. Simply log on later and analyse values and ski data or the most visited slopes. ‘3D Superski Challenge’ is the new ‘app community’: compare your ski performance to that of family and friends. Simply sign up and look who’s the best at the end of the day.

 

SKI ROUTing 

The best way to plan your days on the skis using a tried and tested slope navigator. Insert your starting and finishing point and the device will suggest the quickest route on the 1,200 km Dolomiti Superski slopes.

 

SKI TRACKING

Ski Tracking allows you to record your skiing route on individual slopes or throughout the day. The system produces a summary of your day using graphs on the 3D maps. The slopes you’ve skied on are in blue and orange (the highest number of skied slopes will be orange). It also gives the time you’ve registered, distance made (in km), elevation gain covered and the ‘wellbeing factor’ of every day spent on the slopes.

 

3D SUPERSKI CHALLENGE

The individual outings recorded during the season are saved on your profile and can be viewed later. Users of the 3D SUPERSKI app who are the real competitive bunch of the group and want to see how they measure up against family, friends or even other skiers can now do so by signing up to the brand new ‘3D CHALLENGE’. This virtual challenge inserts the tracked performance in a ranking-based system which includes all users signed up to the challenge. Who will become this season’s SuperSkier? The challenge has just started.

Smart Mobile Award
3D RealityMaps wins the Smart Mobile Award 2013

One highlight in particular stands out at the mobile innovation event 'Communication World 2013', namely, the announcement of the Smart Mobile Award winners. This year, 3D RealityMaps GmbH was chosen by a jury composed of business, science and media representatives, as well as an online voting poll on a social media platform.

By nominating "3D Outdoor Guides", the jury honoured a smartphone application which faithfully represents the Alpine regions. With a selection of integrated, well-described routes, and with the use of GPS technology, hikers and mountain bikers can successfully plan and carry out their trips.

This prize is awarded for innovative mobile solutions realized by young companies and start ups. Special attention was given to start ups with apps or other mobile solutions that forged new paths in the field of mobile business technology, whose innovations were younger than 12 months, and who were in the beta phase or later. The 3D RealityMaps team thanks the jury and online community for this honourable price.

Mehrere Zehntausend Nutzer haben sich bereits die PC-Version des Mount Everest im Internet angesehen. Aufgrund der hohen Nachfrage gibt es den höchsten Berg nun auch als App, die auch vor Ort nutzbar und für alle gängigen Smartphones verfügbar ist. In der kostenlosen App bewegst Du Dich mit einfachen Touchgesten durch das Himalya-Gebirge und kannst dabei beliebige Blickwinkel einnehmen. Als Highlight sind die bekannte Trekkingroute zum Everest Basecamp sowie die beiden klassischen Gipfelrouten auf den Mount Everest als Track eingezeichnet.

Over ten thousand users have already seen the PC version of Mount Everest online. Thanks to popular demand, we are proud to present the tallest mountain to you as an app which can be used on-site, and is compatible with all current smartphones. The free app allows you to choose whichever perspective you desire, and move through the Himalayan mountains with a simple touch of the screen. The famous trekking route to Everest Basecamp, as well as the classic route to the mountain's peak are drawn on the map as highlights.

Along with the free app, we also offer a version with additional functions that may be of particular interest to those planning a trip to the Everest region. Our alternate version provides you with numerous well-known trekking and peak trails. Additionally, you can determine and display your position on the 3D maps using GPS technology, calculate information from the trail completed thus far (e.g. distance, speed, duration), and even enjoy all these tools offline by downloading the 3D maps straight onto your smartphone.

3D RealityMaps employed the higest resolution satellite images, provided by DigitalGlobe, in order to bring you their realistic models of Mount Everest. These images were acquired using a spread of camera angles, and edited into three-dimensional data sets by the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany.

translated from the original test report released on 16.08.2013:

Not only suited to hiking: "3D Outdoor Guides" brings great 3D maps from the Alps right to your android smartphone. "3D Outdoor Guides" not only positions you accurately, but thanks to a vast array of map material and aerial images of the terrain, also offers the best tools for orientiering. The app displays trails through the alps in 3D and leads you to the corners of the Earth most worth seeing. If desired, the app saves the path you travelled so you know what you accomplished even after returning home. Thanks to input from countless mountaineering experts, you can even find out how challenging your next trip will be prior to setting out. Conclusion: "3D Outdoor Guides" is the ideal hiking community  for everyone from solo hikers to large groups. Alongside high-precision placement,  this app delivers everything a mountain enthusiast needs to know. One should note that the free version only provides data on the Zugspitze region. All other trails are constantly updated, but need to be purchased as an add-on to the app. As a further note: the application requires an android OS 2.2 or higher. The download button will bring you to the Google Play Store, where you can install the software.

HANWAG - Alpine Experience
3D RealityMaps supported the HANWAG Alpine Experience

50 participants of eight different nationalities, 14 mountain guides, one mountain, four trails, and the best weather conditions you could wish for. That is how to describe the HANWAG ALPINE EXPERIENCE premier in short. In the weeks leading up to the showing, many hundreds of enthusiastic HANWAG customers competed online for a limited number of guest seats to the premier. As a sponsor and partner, 3D RealityMaps supported the event by supplying animated trail descriptions for reaching the Zugspitze. Watch the official trailer here.

The special guest selection process was not easy, but we were extremely pleased with the number of individuals showing interest in the sweepstakes! On day one, participants had the opportunity to get to know their groups and team guides at a relaxing evening meal. Everyone was then briefed on the trails with the help of an interactive 3D map of the Zugspitze region. 
Two days later each group reached the mountain's peak, met by brilliant weather and the opportunity to reflect on the great experiences and past few memorable days. 


3D RealityMaps would like to thank all the participants as well as Hanwag for organizing such a fantastic event. More infos on this event can be found on Hanwag 's official site.
