Urban pipe network pipelines are criss-crossing and have 3D (three-dimension) distribution. Plenty of attribute information and spatial data are involved. In order to display it in a more intuitive way, UPNVS (urban pipe network visualization system) is designed. The thematic maps service is a part of it. In this paper, we propose the thematic maps service, upload and edit data service, information attention service and 3D viewing service. While 3D display service concentrates on displaying simple map and unique value map. It implements the transit from 2D thematic maps to 3D and reflects the different property values of pipelines with different colors. This application enhances thematic maps service lively and visibility. Finally, we plug it to our UPNVS which can show the patterns and trends easily and provide the information for decision-making. At the same time, the results can also be applied to other visualization system and 3D thematic maps.
