EOD - EarthOnDrive is a team of core software engineers spanning multiple verticals. We develop plugins, tools, and render technologies for 3D Terrain Visualizations, AutoDesk Maya and StudioMax integration, GIS, Remote Sensing, Image Processing, and lidar. Our current woftware rendering technologies such as WavGen Pro have been in the news since 1998, and we invented wavelet based rendering technologies (LOD). Proudly, we present our milestones and achievements in these inegrated industries.
WavGen Proudly unveils its WavGen Pro version 1.61 plug-in at the Los Angeles SIGGRAPH 2005 convention and simultaneously logs its 5000th download of the Terrashader-Terramapper Pro software trial. With the 5000th user EarthOnDrive/WavGen gave away 100 free 1 year software licenses to the first 100 booth visitors.
Added features include Mentalray satellite and stand alone rendering power, while still supporting unlimited size texures, UV maps, and file sizes..

Earth Resource Mapping unveils its newest industry standard JPEG2000-ECW technologies allowing EarthOnDrive/WavGen to support lossy and lossless wavelet compression technology across 8bit-16bit-32bit as well as in unsigned and signed integer file formats. ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet) is a proprietary wavelet compression image format optimized for aerial and satellite imagery. It was developed by Earth Resource Mapping, and is now owned by Intergraph. The lossy compression format efficiently compresses very large images with fine alternating contrast while retaining their visual quality.
Partnered with the makers of AutoDesk VIZ, EarthOnDrive/WavGen initiated the use of its standardized dynamic link libraries in AutoDesk VIZ and VR4MAX. Now urban planning and architecture visualization.bizpanies have a solid and seamless 2D and 3D authoring and rendering viz pipeline with an industry standard runtime.bizponent (VIZ-VR4MAX).
