Smart Garbage is a project which integrates dynamic vehicle routing, multi-agent systems technology and sensor received information in a web-based application. This project provides a solution to collect waste in an efficient and environmental friendly manner. Citizens are made aware of their own garbage production by gamification of the process.
Smart Garbage aims to record and distribute data obtained on a micro level by enhanced sensor techniques. Initially, fill-rate levels, temperatures and CO2 emission rates will be measured. Visualization and distribution of this data is essential to understand the quality of urban life on the long term.
Data from the WebWorldWind platform and the Earth Observation Data Service enables us to visualize the effect of garbage collecting systems around the globe. This allows Smart Garbage to influence the users’ behavior by making them aware of more ecofriendly behavior. Ultimately, Smart Garbage strives towards an ecological solution that will reduce CO2 emission and other pollution to the air we breathe.
This project consists of a Web Application that facilitates visualization and analysis of multidimensional datasets using more than three dimensions.
The impact of Nuclear Power Plant emission is a major environmental management issue for life on this planet. Failure to effectively contain a Nuclear Power Plant accident could initiate catastrophic disaster to every aspect of life for humans, animals, plants etc.
Using this tool other countries/organizations with nuclear power plants emission data can use it to monitor their radioactivity, and take necessary steps towards more sustainable activity.

This project addresses the need for urban areas to collect and analyze air quality data in an effort to protect human health. The project maps and analyzes air pollution data collected from two urban locations: Kathmandu, Nepal, and Springfield, Massachusetts, USA. To understand the air quality situation, it is necessary to investigate and appreciate the various public policy issues and various management responses.
The project contains three main components:
Part I involves the design, development, and testing of an open source Arduino-based air quality sensor.
Parts II and III summarize studies of air quality in the two very different city contexts: Kathmandu, Nepal and Springfield, Massachusetts, USA.
Each case provides a description of: (1) the urban context and the policy-management question; (2) the collection of data using environmental air sensors; (3) the mapping of spatio-temporal data on the WebWorldWind platform, (4) analysis of the data collected; and (5) conclusions and next steps.
Drone Aid is here to change the way emergencies are treated. Drone Aid is an innovative service which brings drones to our everyday life. If you suffer from allergies, asthma or you just had an accident, such as a burn, and you don't own the medication, don't worry.
Just with the touch of a button, a first aid kit for your emergency "lands" at the exact spot where you are. Your accurate position is being tracked by GPS, and our app informs you about the arrival time of the drone, as well as where it lands, in case you are in indoors and the drone can't reach the place.No more time waiting for an ambulance. No more delays due to traffic. Drone Aid offers everything you need for your emergency, and can even act complementary to the ambulance, in more serious cases.
With the help of Drone Aid, the amount of deaths due to ambulance delays will be significantly decreased, and patients will feel more secure.
SpaceBirds puts the world of satellites at your fingertips. This web app is intended as both a professional tool and an educational experience. SpaceBirds is a powerful satellite tracking tool that consists of an intuitive interface for selecting and displaying our world of orbital objects and the ground stations they communicate with.
SpaceBirds provides essential satellite information such as type of object (payload, rocket body or debris), orbital period, orbit type (low, medium and geocentric), country of origin, etc. Users have the ability to easily toggle different groups of satellites, even create and store their own custom groups.
Gathering information about our climate is one of the most pressing issues of our time, which is why international organizations have been establishing multiple satellites and continually monitoring the atmospheric conditions of Earth.
To provide the most comprehensive view of Earth’s weather and climate conditions, one platform with information from all available data sources is brought together and displayed in 3D.
Weather forecasters, research scientists and the casual user alike will benefit by being able to interactively view past, present, and future weather information. This gives the user an entirely customizable experience.
Quake Hunter shows the actual point of origin at depth where the earthquakes occur within the Earth. And it can do this for any number of earthquakes simultaneously using the entire USGS recorded history of earthquakes.
Quake Hunter queries the USGS database and locates those earthquakes on a 3D globe, displayed as epicenters or hypocenters, along with other relevant information for the world’s history of earthquakes going back over 100 years.
Of particular note is the ability to visualize any number of earthquakes at their actual point of origin below the surface. When this amount of data is visualized at depth, you can recognize the interface between a subducting oceanic plate driving itself under the overriding continental crust.
This kind of visualization also works to demonstrate the seismic history defining the opposing sections of continental crust sliding past each other such as the San Andreas transform fault, or the diverging mid-ocean rift zones as well as other areas of Earth's dynamic seismic activity. This ability for visualizing extended periods of seismic activity greatly increases understanding of these various tectonic boundaries.
This project provides an open source solution for generating orthomosaics from data collected by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The tool allows users to generate the 3D information (point cloud data), DEM and final orthomosaic from 2D UAV imagery without any ground control points. WorldWind is used to visualize the result.
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.
WIMP Where Is My Parcel
Wimp is an advanced parcel tracking system based on World Wind platform. WIMP is designed to work with shipping companies(to collect shipping data) and private users (customers) to provide a detailed report of the shipment in progress with a powerful user-friendly interface and the interactive World Wind's globe that can help to understand the actual shipping status with the latest information obtained from the database.
GreenAdvisor is a smart, crowdsourced, opendata-driven mobile app that reshapes the way you can influence businesses and municipalities to act greener and be more sustainable.

Social networks are a priceless source of information when it comes to what is of interest to the public, in a wide range of areas, professional, political, and educational, etc. In this project we bring together geospatial visualization with social network content, expressed via Twitter’s trends.
One of goal of this project is seamless integration of indoor and outdoor space on top of web browser. This project aims at developing a sort of plugin for Web World Wind to expand its functionalities and usabilities to indoor space and architectural (BIM) areas. MAGO3D can import IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) data from architecture files. And then MAGO3D can visualise massive indoor data, at least 100k objects, in a single scene seamlessly with traditional outdoor 3D GIS objects. Users can now manage and handle almost every geospatial object from desktop level to space level with MAGO3D. This project will evolve to manage and service more dynamic data such as IoT (Internet of Things), climate and weather data, and transportation.
