If you would like to automatically depict from node to node straight line segments (say flows); you can check for the Flow Mapper QGIS plugin. Provide input nodes and interaction matrix between nodes as white space deliminated text file, then plugin will automatically generate them in a shapefile. http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/FlowMapper/
A lot depends on the sort of interactivity you want. If you can convert your model to a georeferenced KML or KMZ file (perhaps using Sketchup or Blender) then you can open it in the same way as any other KML and see your 3D model in Google Earth (I've done this with wind turbines and it can be reasonably effective, Google's coarse terrain resolution ...
Have you looked at OpenWebGlobe (which uses WebGL in background) Here is the demo with some buildings loaded: http://swiss3d.openwebglobe.org/ And accoring to forums you can convert Collada/KMZ models to be loaded into this: http://forums.openwebglobe.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=247
One example of this approach can be seen here: www.arcgis.com/apps/CEWebViewer/ This is from ArcGIS using CityEngine 3D where you can zoom around a set of buildings. I've been searching around for more examples and found an interesting one which focuses on city visualizations, called http://vizicities.com/ There is an explanation of how they made their ...
Well your kinda talking about two different things. Street view isn't really a 3D building, its more like a panorama. If you are looking at showing a 3D building in a web browser, you might want to have the Google Earth web plugin installed, and then save your 3D building model as a .KMZ, or even load it to the 3D Warehouse (old Google Warehouse).
Just got this book in the mail this week. it has some truly beautiful maps in it. This is one of my favorites
If the purpose is to compare change over time, I think you must use the same class intervals (quintiles or otherwise) on each map, even if the breaks aren't ideal in certain years. Including text that indicates each map is part of a series, e.g. "Map 3 in a series of 9", should cue the viewer to look for other maps in situations where they come across only ...
