The Power of HTML5 to Visualize and Communicate Atmospheric Remote Sensing Data
DLR (DFD-WIS), GERMANY
- ATMOS as an example of a cross-application development -
In order to promote the use of atmospheric composition products in a wider community, DLR operates processing systems as well as spatial data services. This contribution deals with the efforts made to increase the public outreach of these products. It describes the experience gained in developing a cross-application that can deliver this data and their information to a broad audience.
Besides the recently developed App ATMOS, the contribution deals with the potential and limitations of HTML5 to present geographic data in a general way and addresses the adoption of WebGL to obtain cutting-edge browser-based 3D visualizations.
