OpenWebGlobe, a research project at the FHNW, is a virtual globe for interactively visualizing large volumes of geospatial data. It is based on WebGL and therefore runs in web browsers without plugins. With OpenWebGlobe users can create their own web based virtual globe applications.

    Interesting presentations of Geo and LBS technology. I would have been interested in learning more about their applications in daily life. How to they add value to existing and potential clients. What problems are they solving? How are they making this world a better place?
