Five things to know about VR-TheWorld 4.3...

To celebrate the latest release of VR-TheWorld, here are five things everyone should know:

  1. Its main job is to stream terrain data. VR-TheWorld serves optimized terrain tiles, in any projection, using internet-standard protocols to client simulation applications. It can be hosted both in the cloud or on a local machine running Windows or Linux.  
  2. It's a tool to manage your source terrain data. Not just a tile server, VR-TheWorld is a terrain data management tool to help users import, tile, and composite terrain elevation, imagery, and features on a global scale. The browser-based GUI lets you inspect your data, control the priority, and define which levels of detail each layer contributes to the simulation environment.
  3. No waiting required. As soon as geographic data is loaded onto VR-TheWorld, it is available to client applications. You can choose how much of your data to pre-tile to optimize for performance, but you don’t have to wait. You can immediately use the data in your simulation environment. 
  4. VR-TheWorld comes with a world of terrain data. This includes whole Earth base layers, high-resolution areas, and samples of interesting datasets. It is delivered on a 6TB disk drive with 2TB of layered source datasets, 2TB of pre-tiled layers, and 2TB free space for you to add your own datasets. 
  5. It fits nicely in the MAK ONE modular architecture. VR-TheWorld can be the main source of terrain data for any number of MAK ONE applications simultaneously. But it is not restricted to use by MAK ONE apps; it can also be used to serve web applications that run on mobile devices participating in correlated simulation environments.
