Geosoft has just released Dapple, an open source globe viewer, derived from NASA’s World Wind (NWW). Dapple extends NWW, adding the ability to find and view network-hosted geoscience spatial data.
Dapple provides an intuitive interface that lets geoscientists find and visualize the massive quantities of geoscience data available on the internet. Data includes satellite imagery, remote sensing data, geology maps and geophysical data. Dapple leverages open standards and server technologies including the OpenGIS Consortium’s web map service (WMS) and Geosoft’s own DAP format. The earth science community is encouraged to build on and extend the open source software.
