GML 3 has introduced several new geometry types, including data types for 3D geo-data. In addition GML 3 offers a set of topology constructs. In this paper we will present two examples that build on these new possibilities. The first example is that of a Web service that handles both 2D and 3D GML. The 2D GML is visualized in the client after conversion into SVG; the 3D GML is likewise transformed into X3D, the XML successor of VRML.
