Sneak Peak #3

A cool new TITAN Viewer feature for this upcoming release is HTML support via KML placemark balloons, including support for images and video.

After running through a very quick and easy tutorial for Google Spreadsheets to KML, I created a KMZ of ERDAS offices around the world, complete with images and an embedded video from YouTube. The screenshot above shows a placemark balloon containing information, links plus an illustration of our ERDAS office in Belgium.

Photogrammetry in Space Exploration including a very interesting way maps were utilized in the Apollo 17 mission :)

Here is an interesting one on Aerial Survey Pioneers, documenting the very beginnings of imaging from the air:
