EarthNC, Inc.

No better example to display our talents then to talk about our sister company EarthNC is a leading provider of nautical charts and overlays for Google Earth…

Utilizing more than 2,000 maps from NOAA, EarthNC transformed both “raster” and standard vector maps into KML for the entire United States Coasts and waterways. The project requires and on-going re-fresh of new maps and live provisioning of various weather feeds. Highlights include:

  • The programming of over 183 KML layers, optimizing the display of relevant layer information at the appropriate zoom level.
  • Developed database algorithms to optimize the performance of displaying over tens of thousands of data points in Google Earth, Google Maps and Google Earth API environments
  • Incorporating several variations of NOAA weather feeds for real-time display
