I've stumbled upon that news story, too, but have not otherwise heard about this project.

An open source alternative to map.f4-group.com! Great!

I came to their page http://vizicities.com a year go and was puzzled what they were going to do.

Re: VizCities

Yes, but IMHO it's bad style not to introduce yourself nor adding full S3DB support nor attribution nor hammering 3rd party APIs ...

Let's see how this will continue, personally I get more and more disappointed by the steps that 3D at OSM side and Mozilla do. My dream of a real good open and volunteer driven portal is getting more and more away due to the clutter in different initaitives etc....

Re: VizCities

They just extrude building outlines. Not really osm 3d relevant yet and no need to tell anyone about. Yes, BAD style not to attribute overpass api usage.. Just some stuff by the new hip guys selling old stuff as new smile
And btw stuff isnt done by dreaming about it but by doing it smile
