Ultimate Earth

Europe Wide Angle


Instant Gratification Earth Visualizations

3D Nature has been working for some time on a useful product to bring the benefits of the Ultimate Earth Data Set to WCS and VNS users.

This DVD-ROM contains the best quality, highest resolution collection of terrain, bathymetry, color imagery and cloud maps that we could assemble that covers the entire planet.

Ultimate Earth contains 1 Kilometer land mass terrain data, 10 Kilometer bathymetry, 1 Kilometer color imagery and 5 Kilometer cloudmap data for the entire globe. The DEM data alone contains well over 939 million data points. The imagery contains over one billion pixels.

This DVD-ROM also contains over a dozen projects that allow you to work with a smaller area of the earth (Saves memory and hard drive space.) and Components that allow you to apply this image data to your current projects.

You can gain more information about Ultimate Earth by viewing the Overview Documentation here.

Ultimate Earth is the culmination of many weeks of data collection and several months worth of processing time. To see a full sized rendering of Ultimate Earth visit Chris Hanson's Gallery Page.

If you don't have WCS/VNS and Ultimate Earth, and you're just looking for a great looking view of the Earth from Space, contact our licensing department. You can economically license any of these ready-to-use images for your web site, publication of video. All the benefit and no work!

System Requirements

Requires WCS 6 or VNS 2.

Ultimate Earth is a large and complex dataset. We recommend a computer system with 512Mb to 1Gb of memory and a 1.5Ghz processor or faster to be able to efficiently handle the load. Ultimate Earth requires about 4Gb of hard drive space to install and may require as much as 6Gb once fully decompressed. Approximately 7Gb or more hard drive space is recommended.
