OpenWebGlobe Data Processing

For performance reasons geodata must be preprocessed before being used on the virtual globe.

This repository contains preprocessing applications for image data, elevation data, 3D-objects, point clouds.


Data Processing requires external dependencies For Windows / Visual Studio 2010 you can download them here:


  • boost
  • gdal
  • proj.4
  • zlib
  • jpeg-8c
  • icu
  • libcurl
  • libpng
  • libtiff
  • libxml2
  • stxxl
  • mapnik
  • libpq
  • freetype2
  • libtool
  • libxml2
  • mpi
