Technologies are rapidly developing to connect the Earth's citizens
with improved data, information, and tools for sustaining life on
the planet. This web-site is dedicated to fostering a literate and
collaborative community of systems developers, data providers, and
users to accelerate the creation of 3-D Geobrowsers and their connections
to an evolving network of citizens and scientists. Individuals and
agencies are encouraged to communicate with this initiative and
help contribute to the quality and timeliness of the information
and links provided. Please submit entries and enquiries to Ben Sprague
Establish consensus and community awareness on the user requirements
for functionality of three-dimensional Geobrowsers as part of a
necessary framework for sustaining the vision of a Digital Earth.
We envisage the implementation and evolution of 3-D Geobrowsers
to be accomplished through the adoption and implementation of web-enabled
tools and infrastructure to support the concept of a digital world
GeoBrowser Challenge Rescheduling
The Geobrowser 3-D Challenge scheduled for the 17th and 18th of
July at the Changing Planet auditorium is being postponed at this
time. The organizing committee expresses its regrets for any inconvenience
caused by this postponement. New dates will be announced after the
International Symposium of Digital Earth in Brno, Czech Republic.
21-25 September 2003. The Geobrowser Mandate Report will be presented
at the Symposium and will become available on the website afterwards.
The International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE) invites responses
to a Request for Demonstrations (RFD) in support of the ISDE technology
demonstration and functional user requirements documentation initiative
called “Digital Earth 3D Geobrowser Initiative.” Responses
are due by June 15, 2003.
On the 17th and 18th of July 2003, in Washington, D.C., this unique
exposition will highlight the power and performance of 3-D Geobrowsers
and their strategic importance in harnessing data and information
for Global democracy.
