[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: osgPlanet is a 3D Geospatial viewer built on top of OpenSceneGraph, libwms and
OSSIM . Inspired by BlueMarbleViewer, osgPlanet extends geospatial viewing
with access to native geospatial formats, Elevation data sets, and OGC Web
Mapping Services (WMS) interfaces over the web. osgPlanet is a C++ library and
includes osgplanetviewer as a demonstration.

osgPlanet provides native file access to a wide variety of geospatial data sets
- including raster, vector, and elevation formats. It differs from other 3D
global viewers in that it is not a simple texture mapped sphere - instead
geo-spatially tagged files can be be accurately placed over geoids and
elevation surfaces that have been loaded into the system. Data can be loaded
from file systems on the network or remotely through OGC WMS interfaces.

osgPlanet is hosted on the OSSIM website. osgPlanet is a software library built
on top of OSSIM, libwms, and OpenSceneGraph for 3D viewing.
