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.

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..
