The GeoSphere Image, the GeoSphere Globe, and the Global Visual Library are components of the Earth Situation Room. The ESR is designed to serve as a worldwide network of installations; an integrated multi-user system which serves as a clearing house, research center, and interface for worldwide research on global change and Earth resource management, and center for tracking and visualizing topical events of global concern.
The Company first demonstrated the proof of concept for the Earth Situation Room in 1992 at the Brazilian National Center for Space Research under the sponsorship of the United Nations and Northern Telecom Corporation. The Company has since installed Earth Situation Rooms at the Toho Gas Exhibition Center in Nagoya, Japan, the Vattenfall/Liseberg Theme Park in Gothenburg, Sweden, and the Amazonia Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
