Sharing your 3D content with the world or selected people has never been easier. The latest release of ArcGIS Online earlier this week added the CityEngine Web Viewer, a new application that lets you explore 3D city scenes in your web browser. This app uses new HTML 5 WebGL technology, so there is no need to install a plugin to view 3D scenes.
With Esri CityEngine 2012 you can create these 3D Web Scenes yourself. Author your city scenes in CityEngine and publish them directly to your ArcGIS account. Esri CityEngine 2012 will be available Sep 24.
For more information, see the Esri CityEngine product page.
