GenesisIG is built on our GenesisRTX rendering engine which leverages GPU architectures and multi-core processors to provide high-fidelity realtime visualization from GIS source data.

GenesisIG takes 3D visualization one step further. 

With GenesisIG, 3D scene data elements are built and rendered as your raw source data is loaded from disk. No offline construction of a static database from the source data is required. Generation of the scene during runtime allows GenesisIG to execute concurrently and take full advantage of GPU and CPU parallelism.

  • Avoid pre-computation on data; GenesisIG provides the unique ability to maximize the utility of the GPU cores to process the data at runtime saving pre-compilation time and cost.

  • Using some simple rules, GenesisIG retrieves relevant data for your area of interest anywhere on the globe and constructs a scene during runtime complete with a continuous level of detail.

  • Generating the scene during run-time tremendously reduces computational workload that would otherwise be required to load an entire database as well as allowing for quick and simple updates of data or adding additional data.

  • Generating the scene during run-time allows for the abstraction of using the data for different abilities that could not be done otherwise with precompiled systems. (e.g. the addition of obstruction light points on tall buildings or adding moving traffic to roadways).

  • Allows for true scalability of your hardware, a few simple rule changes or small configuration file modifications allow for increased scene density with improved computer hardware.

  • Hardware and display system capabilities – Seamless, multi-channel (projector) support. Single GPU or multi-GPU IG computer capable; multiple displays from single IG; multiple views within single display.
