Abstract : Web browsers and portable devices open up many new application deployment possibilities for future software development, but they also have limitations that need to be addressed early. In order to ascertain if existing open source and commercial technologies would be sufficient to address current and future Air Force needs, it was desirable to complete a survey on existing web based Graphics Engines and associated products. In the end, nine (9) 3D engines, five (5) 2D engines, one (1) geospatial engine, and two (2) data driven document engines (these use data to control the creation and control of dynamic and interactive documents) were identified which are fruitful for further investigation.
