earthenterprise - Google Earth Enterprise - Open Source

  •        70

Earth Enterprise is the open source release of Google Earth Enterprise, a geospatial application which provides the ability to build and host custom 3D globes and 2D maps. Earth Enterprise does not provide a private version of Google imagery that's currently available in Google Maps or Earth.Refer to the wiki for instructions on building from source on one of these platforms.

Cesium - An open-source JavaScript library for world-class 3D globes and maps

  •    Javascript

CesiumJS is a JavaScript library for creating 3D globes and 2D maps in a web browser without a plugin. It uses WebGL for hardware-accelerated graphics, and is cross-platform, cross-browser, and tuned for dynamic-data visualization.

EarthView - 3D Visualization of Earth using Map Tiles for iOS

  •    Objective-C

EarthView is an open-source 3D visualization of the Earth globe for iOS that uses map tiles for imagery and OpenGL ES and GLKit for rendering. I built it for a side-project that may never go anywhere, so I figured it might be educational or useful to other developers. The project uses a quad-tree to page in map tiles that conform to the Tile Map Service standard (or, the flipped Google equivalent). The level of detail to display is determined by the estimated screen-space error of a given page.

natural-earth-vector - A global, public domain map dataset available at three scales and featuring tightly integrated vector and raster data

  •    HTML

No, really! This readme is a poor substitute for the live site. Natural Earth is a public domain map dataset available at 1:10m, 1:50m, and 1:110 million scales. Featuring tightly integrated vector (here) and raster data (over there), with Natural Earth you can make a variety of visually pleasing, well-crafted maps with cartography or GIS software.

GRASS GIS - Geographic Resources Analysis Support System

  •    C++

Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is a Geographic Information System (GIS) used for data management, image processing, graphics production, spatial modelling, and visualization of many types of data. GRASS supports raster and vector data in two and three dimensions. The vector data model is topological, meaning that areas are defined by boundaries and centroids; boundaries cannot overlap within a single layer.

node-gdal - Node.js bindings for GDAL (Geospatial Data Abstraction Library)

  •    C++

Read and write raster and vector geospatial datasets straight from Node.js with this native GDAL binding. GDAL 2.0.1 (GEOS 3.4.2, Proj.4 4.8.0) comes bundled, so node-gdal will work straight out of the box. To get started, browse the API Documentation or examples. This binding is a collaboration between Natural Atlas and Mapbox. Its contributors are Brandon Reavis, Brian Reavis, Dane Springmeyer, Zac McCormick, and others.

maptk - Motion-imagery Aerial Photogrammetry Toolkit

  •    C++

MAP-Tk started as an open source C++ collection of libraries and tools for making measurements from aerial video. Initial capability focused on estimating the camera flight trajectory and a sparse 3D point cloud of a scene. These products are jointly optimized via sparse bundle adjustment and are geo-localized if given additional control points or GPS metadata. This project has similar goals as projects like Bundler and VisualSFM. However, the focus here in on efficiently processing aerial video rather than community photo collections. Special attention has been given to the case where the variation in depth of the 3D scene is small compared to distance to the camera. In these cases, planar homographies can be used to assist feature tracking, stabilize the video, and aid in solving loop closure problems.

mapbox-gl-native - Interactive, thoroughly customizable maps in native Android, iOS, macOS, Node

  •    C++

A library for embedding interactive, customizable vector maps into native applications on multiple platforms. It takes stylesheets that conform to the Mapbox Style Specification, applies them to vector tiles that conform to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, and renders them using OpenGL. Mapbox GL JS is the WebGL-based counterpart, designed for use on the Web.If your platform or hybrid application framework isn’t listed here, consider embedding Mapbox GL JS using the standard Web capabilities on your platform.

Sophus - C++ implementation of Lie Groups using Eigen.

  •    C++

This is a c++ implementation of Lie groups commonly used for 2d and 3d geometric problems (i.e. for Computer Vision or Robotics applications). Among others, this package includes the special orthogonal groups SO(2) and SO(3) to present rotations in 2d and 3d as well as the special Euclidean group SE(2) and SE(3) to represent rigid body transformations (i.e. rotations and translations) in 2d and 3d. Sophus compiles with clang and gcc on Linux and OS X as well as msvc on Windows. The specific compiler and operating system versions which are supported are the ones which are used in the Continuous Integration (CI): See TravisCI and AppVeyor for details.

OverlappingMarkerSpiderfier - Deals with overlapping markers in Google Maps JS API v3, Google Earth-style

  •    Javascript

This library makes map markers in the Google Maps API (version 3) behave in that Google Earth way (minus the animation). Small numbers of markers (yes, up to 8) spiderfy into a circle. Larger numbers fan out into a more space-efficient spiral.The compiled code has no dependencies beyond Google Maps. Compiled out of CoffeeScript, minified with Google’s Closure Compiler and gzipped, it’s under 4KB.
