3. A Multibeam Fly-Through in Georgian Bay using NASA World Wind
The following example shows high resolution multibeam data and imagery embedded in the NASA World Wind Viewer. The viewer is a custom application developed by Tekmap Consulting using the World Wind SDK (http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/java/).
The multibeam data was collected by the Canadian Hydrographic Service and the Geological Survey of Canada for the Fathom Five National Marine Park (Parks Canada). The depth range of the multibeam data is 2 to 175 m. The vertical exaggeration is 2x.
