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.
ERDAS has released the newest version of the V3.3 ECW-JPEG2000 SDK as a compiled 32bit codec and as source code. EarthOnDrive/WavGen has ported the SDK v3.3 to varios flavours of Linux, and OSX, and Windows XP-VISTA-7. EarthOnDrive/WavGen has even finshed the port to 64bit using the source codes provided and as part of the Apple Developer Network, is guaranteeing 64bit snow leopard support in the Fall of 2009. We can guarantee support for all operating systems as well as well as 32bit and 64bit support.
