Within the Building with Nature (BwN) programme many data, models and tools are collected and/or developed. The enormous amount of information that is becoming available this way, is not always easily accessible for low-end users. Therefore, a web application (viewer.openearth.nl) has been developed to provide an overview of all this information on a case-by-case basis (see screenshot). This application aims to visualize data, models and tools that have been made available on the OpenDAP and kml servers, as indicated in the figure below. Furthermore, it is possible to perform some basic actions on the data (e.g interpolation along a line, plotting timeseries). The web application is developed as a part of Workpackage DM 1.3 of the BwN programme.
The set-up of the web application allows for flexible usage in various projects, both within and outside the BwN programme. As long as the data is in NetCDF-format, it can easily be converted into kml and visualized in the web application.
