Visualising GDI data with Google Earth

On this page you'll find information about a test done to see how to best visualise large-volume distributed data (as found typically in a GeoData Infrastructure) using the Google Earth virtual globe software. We tested this with the Open Street Map data set for the Netherlands, a dataset containing road data for navigational purposes as well additional topographic data. Here you can find information about the technical background and the broader project:

  • a paper about the project (presented at the AGILE 2009 conference (PDF file)
  • the technical report by Marc Graham, the student who actually designed and implemented it (PDF file)
