Abstract:

This report documents the implementation of the marching cubes algorithm for constructing isosurfaces of a three-dimensional scalar field for display within Google Earth. It also describes a user-friendly Google Earth graphical user interface GUI menu designed to accomplish this task with minimal input from the user. The resulting isosurface is then displayed automatically in Google Earth s three-dimensional display and saved in a Keyhole Markup Language KML file. This GUI is developed specifically to support the Three-Dimensional Wind Field 3DWF model in order to showcase its results and capabilities.
