The EventScope Authoring Tool [AT] is a point and click interface that enables a non-programmer, such as a content developer, artist, or educator to create guided tours through 3D Virtual Environment Terrain Models that represent remote sites in photorealistic detail.


The Authoring Tool was developed by Coppin at PlatformDigital, LLC and later licensed to Carnegie Mellon University [CMU] to be used by Coppin's CMU based EventScope Project. The Authoring Tool runs on both Windows and Macintosh platforms.
