Stereo Analyst: Visualizing Large Stereoscopic Imagery in Real-Time
Stereo Analyst visualizes stereo-paired imagery in real time and collects 3D features. It is capable of using camera orientation to provide on-the-fly epipolar re- sampling, using OpenGL's coordinate transformation pipeline, and uses a multi-threaded, multi-resolution scheme for imagery and overlayed feature data for real-time navigation.

OpenGL Texture-Mapping With Very Large Datasets and Multi-Resolution Tiles
On OpenGL systems without the "clipmap" extension, a tiled approach can be used to provide the correct resolution image data for different parts of a 3D visualization, where very large texture-maps are desired. The application, called "EarthView" is a planetary browser, which can be used to view arbitrary amounts of geo-referenced image and terrain elevation data.
