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.
EarthOnDrive/WavGen Renames its software from Terrashader to WavGen Pro noting the affinity to geodata and satellite data (terra) and texture and UV mapping (mapper). EarthOnDrive/WavGen also plans on releasing a new set of optimized compression routines to support Intels next generation of hardware that promises to better manage virtual memory across Intels multi-threading core technology.
UV mapping is the 3D modeling process of making a 2D image representation of a 3D models surface. his process projects a texture map onto a 3D object. The letters "U" and "V" denote the axes of the 2D te..
EarthOnDrive/WavGen is supplying renderpower to graphic artists behind the Too Fast Too Furious project in a Earth powers of ten shot opening sequence. This maya pipeline using separate passes for clouds, shadows, landmass, water, and atmosphere will be using very large satellite and quickbird textures compressed with EarthOnDrive/WavGen and Eons Ozone for Couds.

Digital Domain and EarthOnDrive/WavGen supply several Lightwave renderings for animations used in several movies. Many very high resolution backdrop passes were prepared by compressing stitched imagery and subsequently set to a hemiomorphic half dome. Fast render performance and ease of use has successfully placed EarthOnDrive/WavGen in one of Southern Californias premiere Studios..

In anticipation of the SIGGRAPH 2008, EarthOnDrive/WavGen EarthOnDrive decide to reduce the cost to license software copy written and patented as the Terrashader and WavGen Pro. We anticipate that a reduction in our pricing will further secure our lead role in helping other companies visualize terrains and environments using highest quality 3D tools, plugins, and renderers.
Founded in 1993 as DBS GmbH, the EarthOnDrive/WavGen branded name became Terratracer in 1998 with the projects surrounding the Tour de France out of Ludwigsburg, Germany. From here EarthOnDrive/WavGen further developed t..
The Small Business Innovation Research (or SBIR) program is a United States Government program, coordinated by the Small Business Administration, intended to help certain small businesses conduct research and development (R&D). Funding takes the form of contracts or grants. The recipient projects must have the potential for commercialization and must meet specific U.S. Government R&D needs.
The SBIR program was created to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal research funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national econ..
Continued interest in our video compression technology has resulted in EarthOnDrive/WavGen to strengthen possible partnerships for later phase SBIR (small business innovative research) involvement. Solicitations for new NAVY, ARMY, DoD, and Airforce programs begin on May 19th 2008. We plan to submit several early Phase I R&D schedules for 2008.
EarthOnDrive/WavGen rediscovers production services after a few years of servicing companies with software and resumes these productions under the name Terra Tracer Inc. Mr. Mohnen, CEO of EarthOnDrive/WavGen Ic said, it is now time to resume with ou..
EarthOnDrive/WavGen entered into a strategic internal R&D phase with AutoDesk to explore new technologies in large scale image compression technologies as they relate to several overlapping industry verticles and project verticals including architectural visualizations, geographic applications, rich media and entertainment, and defense.
Autodesk, Inc. is an American multinational software corporation that makes software for the architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, and entertainment industries. Autodesk is headquartered in San Rafael, California, and features a gall..
EarthOnDrive/WavGen has received its 5th copyright in image compression and large scale spatial compression technology. Mr. Mohnen, CEO of EarthOnDrive/WavGen mentions, there seems to be no compression or encoding technologies that allow for efficient large scale 4K work flows to exist, and added that EarthOnDrive/WavGenorporarted has not sat dormant on its past legacy to surprise the field with some extremely interesting and novel technologies in the very near future..
