A Miner3D sitemap

Miner3D viewer To see this sitemap, you'll need to have the free Miner3D plug-in installed from It's only 85K and it enables you to view text-based 3D environments that are coded in XML, making them quick to download.

This demonstration shows a small sitemap. All the links are active, but it doesn't represent the whole of this site. You can click in the window and move the mouse to drag it around, and you can double click on the boxes to go to the appropriate webpage.

In 3D terms, the code that creates this is compact. It's just text, describing where boxes are positioned, what's on them and where they link to.

You can download a free software development kit which includes detailed documentation on how to achieve effects like this.
