ABSTRACT The integration of local measurements and monitoring via global-scale Earth observations has become a new challenge in digital Earth science. The increasing accessibility and ease of use of virtual globes (VGs) represent primary advantages of this integration, and the digital Earth scientific community has adopted this technology as one of the main methods for disseminating the results of scientific studies. In this study, the best VG software for the dissemination and analysis of high…

Communicating perceived geospatial data quality of 3D objects in virtual globes
TLDR
This thesis presents an approach for visualizing the perceived quality of 3D objects in VGs that adapts an approach successfully used in other domains, the five star and user feedback system, to communicate the reliability or quality of data/products to lay users.
Virtual Globes: An Overview of Their History, Uses, and Future Challenges
TLDR
Technical advances, data availability and end-user expectations are driving the rapid development of virtual globes, making this an ideal time to explore the uses to whichvirtual globes can be put, ways to identify the challenges involved in their use, and highlight potential pitfalls and opportunities.
High-performance visualisation of UAV sensor and image data with raster maps and topography in 3D
TLDR
This paper presents Norut Geo Viz, a system for visualising data from UAVs both in real time and after landing in 3D on a virtual globe, developed from scratch to provide a customisable and platform-independent visualisation engine for georeferenced and timestamped data collected by Uavs.
THE POWER OF VIRTUAL GLOBES FOR VALORISING CULTURAL HERITAGE AND ENABLING SUSTAINABLE TOURISM: NASA WORLD WIND APPLICATIONS
TLDR
World Wind can be considered an ideal virtual globe for tourism applications, as it can be shaped to increase aware ness of cultural history and, in turn, enhance tour istic experience.
