Visualization tool

The project visualization system combines the capabilities and flexibility of a 3D geographic information system (GIS) with the latest advances in various fields of scientific visualization. It integrates data acquired during the project cruises as well as relevant archival data and thus enables visual spatial analysis of this data. The visualization system presents the data either on an interactive 2D map using a geographic projection of the user’s choice, or on top of a detailed 3D terrain model. Even stereoscopic 3D viewing is supported to enhance the perception and understanding of complex 3D phenomena (e.g. the movement of particles through the water volume based on sea currents at certain weather conditions). The interface of the application was designed to be easily usable also for non-experts and features intuitive navigation in 2D and 3D that allows the viewer to look at the data in its geographic context at arbitrary scales.
