Today, thanks to the internet connection, the borders are disappearing and accessing information is more comfortable. Instead of desktop applications, number of web-based applications which can be seen instant changes by all users are increasing day by day. The diversity of web-based applications that are currently used in presenting spatial information to users is also spreading. Using open source libraries, developers can develop web applications for their own purposes. Three dimensional (3D) visualization on web is a commonly used approach in geographic information systems (GIS) applications. In this article, it is aimed to develop a 3D web application using open source library. Vector data layers containing attribute data on global, country and city levels are visualized on web application. The raster data layers produced in the most suitable site selection and mapping of land valuation process results are also visualized on the web application in three dimensional. It is pointed that the output products obtained from different studies can be accessed and visualized through the web browser without installing an additional program or add-ons on the users' computers.
