a doxel-based tool for web visualization of environmental variables

schermata funzionamento

In recent years the GIS world has been moving towards 3D modeling but, especially in case of WebGIS, 3D complete solutions are still missing. Nevertheless the potentiality offered by the 3D environment and the enrichment of analyses based on immersivity, make those solutions absolutely welcomed, if not essential, for environmental researches. The Laboratorio di Geomatica has developed a tool for representing 4D variables (3D location of the variable values at different times) provided in netCDF format. Tool is based on the Free and Open Source Java NASA's World Wind virtual globe.

Launch with Java Web Start
