Alaskan Arctic National Parks Landscape Viewer

Zoom, pan, and tilt simulated 3-D images showing five national parks in northern Alaska. Choose features and fly to them, and then view photographs from the site.

This interactive Internet feature provides a birds-eye view of five national parks in northern Alaska. It features satellite images and aerial photographs draped over topography to simulate a 3-D view from above. Users can fly to points of interest by selecting them from a menu that also provides a written narrative. They can also explore on their own with interactive pan, zoom, and tilt.

The viewer utilizes open-source software developed by the OpenWebGlobe project, based at the Institute of Geomatics Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. Anyone with a WebGL-enabled browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and a reasonably fast Internet connection can use it.
