The aim of this paper is to discuss on the issues related to the use of a new proposed four tier framework for online application of 3D visualization. This research problem is undertaken as the current framework has issues of more processing power is needed for the middle tier. In the authors' novel approach, they designed a framework based on the server/client architecture which distributes the task into the tiers concept to overcome the problem. It is being formalized into four tiers framework by advancing one more tier into the existing three tiers framework for handling the visualization process. The four tiers framework is divided into the client, logic, visualization process, and database tiers respectively.
