The popularity of 3D graphics has grown exponentially in the latest years, which has lead to an increase in the range of applications where this kind of representations are used. The monitoring of industrial processes is an area where this type of simulation is rarely used, being much more common to show the information in traditional 2D interfaces. An application for data visualization in maritime container terminals is introduced here. We have developed a modular system adaptable to any stacked objects problem. This paper describes the architecture of our system, its features, and the graphics techniques applied to achieve a high frame rate and keep it independent of the data size.
