Utne Reader: In Spaceship Earth's Cockpit
"A sort of interactive atlas, this visually stunning tool will let you
tap into a vast library of both historical and live data, and view multi-layered displays..."
Making the Geoscope a Reality
"I've just attended the Geostorytelling session at the PlaNetwork conference
at the Presidio in San Francisco, and all I can say is: Wow."
For the June, 2003 PlaNetwork Conference in San Francisco,
BFI put together a panel of presenters
under the heading of "Geo-Storytelling." It was not only an opportunity to demonstrate EARTHscope, but
also a perfect way to explore collaboration with our co-panelists, Ben Discoe and Todd Helt:
- Ben Discoe, of the Virtual Terrain Project,
has created a robust, open source 3-D terrain modeling
program which contains a 3-D satellite globe featuring NASA's latest satellite imagery that seamlessly
transforms into the Fuller Projection.
- Todd Helt, a founder of Telemorphic, presented his Maplicity software, a browser-based solution
that allows users to perform real-time interactive map analysis and visualization via the Internet.
