COMPASS (“Collaborative Modular Prototyping And Simulation Server”) is a framework for developing web applications with which elements of 3D scenes can be arranged and end enriched with metadata.
It is collaborative in the sense that multiple users are able to see and interact with the same scene at the same time. It is modular because it’s easy to assemble customized applications with the building blocks of the framework, and that it is easy to extend the metadata model to accommodate a given usage scenario. Its main usage scenario is prototypical layouting (one might also say simulation) of a scene. Furthermore, we hope that it is easy to build protoypical web applications with COMPASS.
