To do research and development for generating viewshed analysis on 3D Earth terrain.3D capabilities to be realized directly in a supported web browser without any need for an additional plug-in or extension. A viewshed is an area that is visible from a specific location. A viewshed analysis on 3D Earth terrain will be helpful in understanding and preparing for locate communication towers or to determine the view from a road. In this paper, a study is undertaken to find an approach for viewshed analysis in client-server environment. This paper discusses technologies like WebGL, HTML5, JSP, CesiumJS and Apache Tomcat for achieving 3D viewshed analysis. HTML5 is an open standard format and provides common platform for application to be developed and used on the web. WebGL is an extension of HTML5, which is now widely used for developing web applications requiring 3D visualization.
