SERVIR-Viz 3-D Visualization Tool
Entry ID: SERVIR_VIZ3D


Summary
Abstract: SERVIR-Viz is a customized version of NASA's free, open-source, web-enabled, 3D earth exploration tool known as WorldWind. As with other mapping browsers such as Google Earth, SERVIR-Viz allows users to zoom to any place on Earth and tilt the viewing angle so that they can "fly" across a 3-D terrain. The software taps into remotely-hosted framework data layers, maps, and satellite images and other SERVIR products in an interactive, 3D globe environment.

SERVIR-Viz was developed in a joint effort lead by SERVIR research partner, the Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology (IAGT). SERVIR-Viz allows users to employ custom tools and view remotely-hosted framework data layers, maps, real-time satellite images, and other SERVIR products relevant to the Mesoamerica region in an interactive, 3D globe environment. SERVIR-VIZ is fully interoperable with NASA World Wind and can be used in conjunction with the numerous plug-ins and add-ons available from WorldWind Central. Please visit this page in the future as the SERVIR and IAGT teams have plans to expand the tools, data, and images available from SERVIR-VIZ.
