Our first and project was TeleViewer, which is a digital earth supporting
many different ways to see the world or any part of the world. These may be based
on images, video, computer graphics, or live streamed views, telepresence robotic
views, etc. It is inspired by Google Eath, StreetView and many great related
projects, but we seek to build open source tools with core content in the
Our ultimate vision is to have free tools available to anyone to let them see the
world or any part of the world in useful and inspiring ways.
