Qgis2threejs is a plugin by Minoru Akagi which exports terrain data combined with the map canvas image and optional vector data to an html file which can be viewed in 3D in any web browser which supports WebGL. To do that, this plugin uses the Three.js library.
This is the result of my first experiments with Qgis2threejs. In the following sections, I will show the steps to reproduce it.
1. The data
The building blocks of this visualization are:
- elevation data and the hillshade derived from this data
- a base map (WMTS from basemap.at in my case)

- tree data from the city of Vienna
Load all datasets into QGIS.
