We have just implemented 3D playback with Roll, Pitch, Yaw animation on Exmaps

We have just implemented 3D playback with Roll, Pitch, Yaw animation on www.exmaps.com.

We feel that 3D playback will be much better than 2D visualisation. You do not need to reconstruct the flight mentally using roll, pitch, yaw graph nor figure out how did the drone fly via the 2D "spaghetti" created on the 2D map. 3D playback not only shows the path in 3D space but also animates the state of the drone. 
It will be easier to
1) see if the plane is indeed flying with nose pointing to line of flight
2) which way the multirotor crash
3) drop in height during flight
and more....

There are some limitations:

1) Might not depict rapid roll/spin movement correctly 
2) Might not be compatible with mobile devices and older computers

Heres an interesting high altitude helium balloon plane flight http://exmaps.com/c835c8  done by LOHAN

Do give it a try and let us know what you think!

What hardware are you using?

do you support ios and osx (apple and safari)? i had a buddy just try the link i sent them and he couldnt get it to play. i love this 3d imagery and track that it shows.

Hi, depends on Safari's support for WebGL. I understand that it is not well supported. Try OSX and chrome?
