Global Earthquake Forecast System
Trillium Learning &
Kodiak Island Borough District
Magnetic field anomalies have been shown to precede an earthquake by several hours to several days. This anomalous fluctuation in the Earth's magnetic field is associated with the enormous tectonic stress build-up at the earthquake's hypocenter.
- This first phase of a Global Earthquake Forecast System (GEFS) incorporates real-time measurements of the Earth's magnetic field from a distributed array of 3‑axis magnetometers.
- The data is collected at a rate of at 20 Hz, visualized in near real-time and continuously analyzed for magnetic field anomalies indicative of earthquake precursor signals.

LiDAR data is becoming increasingly important to urban management and other areas where LiDAR data is invaluable. This project uses the NASA Web World Wind as the interface for LiDAR data to be read, filtered, edited, and visualized in the native context of a virtual globe.
- In order to support data sets that cannot be geo-referenced, the majority of the functionality will also be available in a stand-alone graphics environment outside the context of World Wind.
- This project builds on earlier success with LiDAR tools and support for the City of Springfield, Oregon.

Web World Wind – OpenStreetMap
wwwOSM joins OpenStreetMap with Web World Wind
wwwOSM is composed of:
- An API layer for read-only geodata based on a custom version of the OSM API. This provides a wide range of querying options, geojson support and a service layer that keeps the local OSM database up-to-date based on any differences since the last update.
- A Web World Wind layer to visualise, interact and filter OSM elements. This includes a cached system to enhance the performances and an advanced option to filter desired elements by level-of-detail to ensure maximum usability of the service

gvSIG 3D View Plugin
3D View is a plugin for gvSIG 2.2 based on NASA WorldWind SDK that allows users to create 3D views from gvSIG 2D views.
3D View plugin is compatible with all vector and raster formats, databases and web remote services supported by gvSIG Desktop.
3D View can:
- Rasterize vector layers with any symbology.
- Load raster layers and digital elevation models.
- Register layer changes in 2D view to update them into 3D view.
- Synchronize both views at the same time.
