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 has partnered with Global Mapper LLC (Globalmapper) as a reseller of there image processing software. This will allow our present customer base to author spatial geodata and satellite data at a lower cost to production than most other satellite and aerial processing software packages (including ESRI, TNT Mips, PCI Easypace, ERMapper, and ERDAS Imagine).
Global Mapper is a geographic information system (GIS) software package currently developed by Blue Marble Geographics that runs on Microsoft Windows. The GIS software competes with ESRI, GeoMedia, Manifold System, and Ma..
EarthOnDrive/WavGen and the Deutsche Luft- und Raumfahrt plan on further advancing Mars Terrain Visualizations and many sports coverages and animated content using newest satellite data and aerially scanned data. The team is very motivated to finish project work in Multimedia and Entertainment using a variety of geodata for Olympic Coverages in Vancouver through to the Alpin Ski World Cup in Held in Garmish, Germany.

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.

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..
