From The Developers

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 Pro Version 2.1 Released
EarthOnDrive/WavGen has released Candidate Platinum Version 2.1 which shares a common source code repository for all three operating systems (Windows, Linux, and OSX) as well as all four different software applications (Maya, Lightwave, SoftImage, and Maya) and on the two types of hardware (32bit and 64bit). We are proud to have designed wavelet technology to not only support this, but also to structure our texture encoding and decoding abilities around 100% third party tools and renderers and plugins where they exist. Founded in 1993 as DBS GmbH, the EarthOnDrive/WavGen branded name became..
Trimaran, Le Tour, and EarthOnDrive/WavGen Once Again
EarthOnDrive/WavGen, partnered with Trimaran and IGN (Institut Geographique nationale) has been contracted by the ASO to deliver the 3D maps and Terrains of individual stages and ettappes of the Tour de France for the 10th Season in a row. Only this time we are delivering the Tour de France world picture in HD resolution (1920x1080). This type of production schedule is tight and within 3 months, all stages and maps need to be delivered in 9x the resolution as PAL-NTSC-SECAM. This type of very high end geographic coverage can only be mastered using wavelet compression and our rendering technolo..
AutoDesk and EarthOnDrive/WavGen Team Up
AutoDesk has again invited EarthOnDrive/WavGen to partner onsite and in-booth at the ITSEC conference. The ITSEC is the nations largest defense related trade and conference show highlighting emerging technologies centered around Homeland Security and NextGen technology development. We are showing our AutoDesk 3D integration pipelines including our AutoCAD to REVIT to 3D Studio Max plugins which are to be released as consumer licensing in the Spring of 2008. We are also highlighting our realtime and gaming pipelines from Maya and 3D Studio Max to game engine design (realtime shaders and large s..
Adapt Conference in Montreal
Creative minds unite at the Adapt Conference in Montreal and AutoDesk has partnered with EarthOnDrive/WavGen on site and in booth. EarthOnDrive/WavGen has also delivered stunning Mount Everest demo materials which Marcel De Jong and Lee Frazier (Autodesk application engineers) will be presenting. Dont miss this opportunity to discuss our technology with those 3D Studio Max and Maya folks. Digital 04 Studios announced the return of its popular conference in Montreal geared toward the digital art industry. Named Advanced Digital Art Production Techniques (ADAPT), the conference will feature m..

EarthOnDrive/WavGen Partner with GDS&M
EarthOnDrive/WavGen is pleased to announce that car designers are working to supply GSD&M (Texas) with unique and scalable high resolution digital automotive assets of BMW cars. In wiring a CG visual effects pipeline with NextGen highly renderable assets for television commercials, the designers and modelers have chosen EarthOnDrive/WavGen Software for their needs as they contract to this Ad Agency. GDS&M are a full-service advertising agency born and raised in Austin, Texas. Our story goes a little something like this. In 1971 a group of friends graduated from The University of Texas (Hook..
WavGen Pro Version 3.0 Released
EarthOnDrive/WavGen is pleased to announce a partnership with www.GetReel.net together with www.SupaCam com. Inline with internal R&D at EarthOnDrive/WavGen, we have copywritten and started the patenting process on a unique form of spatial video and audio compression technologies taking into consideration that wavelet compression is extremely efficient at saving off redundant horizontally rowed and vertically aligned raster data. Our commitment to excellence and our CDEC R&D contract in the field of video compression will surely make a unique splash at the u coming NAB 2008 show in Las Vegas. ..

Landsat 9 Missions
Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones.  Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base..
