GIS Air Combat Simulation
This demo visualizes a dog fight
simulation on top of a GIS map
generated by the GLG Map Server.
here for other examples of GIS mapping with zooming, panning, as
well as different GIS projections
This dog fight simulation demonstrates the following features
of the GLG Toolkit:
Dynamic creation of aircraft and missile icons
Updating dynamic objects in 3D on top of a GIS map.
The map is embedded in the drawing via an integrated GIS Object
that utilizes the GLG Map Server.
Attributes dynamics is used to change color of the selected
plane and change icon sizes.
Object selection is used to select planes or missiles with
Popup dialogs are used to display a position and directional
angles of the selected aircraft or the selected missile.
The demo uses similated data. However,
with a data source, it can display live data.
To display an aircraft's or missile's location and directional
angles, select them with the mouse.
For fast moving objects, this is more convenient than
tooltips used in
Use buttons on the right to change icon size or to restart
Use the Speed slider to control the speed of airplanes and
The demo uses a vector Digital
Chart of the World (DCW) GIS dataset displayed on top of the NASA's Visible Earth image dataset
used as a background.
NOTE: To run the demo locally from
your own server, the GLG Map
Server has to be setup on that server. If the map server is not
set up, the map image will be missing.
