Build your own Open Source virtual globe with the OpenWebGlobe SDK
Mr Tom Payne, Camptocamp SA
Mr Emmanuel Belo
The OpenWebGlobe SDK, created by the Geomatics Engineering departement at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, was open sourced in April 2011. It renders a high quality virtual globe with high precision rendering on the WGS84 Ellipsoid, which allows applications in the field of mixed reality applications and location based services. The SDK presents a mature toolkit for building cross-platform virtual globes with rich capabilities for visualizing and interacting with 3D data, as well as developing unique and exciting new applications. In this talk we present the project, demonstrate how you can present your own data in OpenWebGlobe, and show a preview of a port to WebGL.
Tom Payne is a GIS developer at Camptocamp SA focusing on bringing 3D GIS applications to the web with WebGL.
