Visualisation of open-source data (OpenEarth-Viewer)

How to Use

GoogleEarth based visualisation can be accessed with GoogleEarth desktop application installed in your machine. From there, .kml files in the kml server can be accessed or new .kml files can be generated with the help of OpenEarthTools. A web viewer for the visualisation of Rijkswaterstaat BnO-kust data and a web-viewer for Sand Motor data are currently under development.

Recommendations, Limitations and Lessons Learned

Users are generally familiar with Google Earth and its visualisations have proven to be useful to disseminate data & model results that are changing in both space and time. Other viewers, such as MapboxLizard or Geoserver, are available that also support the visualisation for other data formats.
