GIScience with Virtual Globes

WxAnalyst has pioneered Focus Objects (Patent Pending) to enable GIS and GIScience operations without leaving the Virtual Globe environment. Dubbed WxAzygy® (we pronounce it "wix'-a-zi-gee"), this innovation emerges from the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Program with NASA and NOAA funding.

This page links to several 3D/4D WxAzygy® applications using a light client with Google Earth.
