Datascape - 3D and Geospatial Information Visualisation

Datascape is a data visualisation space for Second Life.

It is designed to help geographically dispersed teams view, assess and analyse information and data of different media types, particularly where that information has a geographic component. The core is a 20m floor map. This can use Google Maps or similar to zoom from whole-earth to 2m resolution (or higher) satellite imagery. RSS, Flickr, Twitter and other datafeeds can be shown on screens and plotted on the map; touching their markers opening their links to the web. Real-time data can be brought in, for instance to track the movement of aircraft or vehicles. Around the map supporting displays can be used to show video, infographics and slides, or national and international Alert states. Datascape can be used within a variety of different government contexts from city planning, through environment and transportation to battle-space and disaster management.
