osgEarth is a dynamic terrain-rendering toolkit for OpenSceneGraph.

osgEarth works with a wide variety of data sources:

 * Zero-intergration -- just load a ".earth" file and go
 * Round-earth (geocentric) or flat-earth (projected) terrain
 * Supports multiple image layers using multitexturing and blending
 * Combines multiple elevation layers into a single global heightfield
 * Automatically reprojects source data
 * SpatialReference API -- full geospatial projections support
 * Flexible caching system for running offline or boosting performance
 * EarthManipulator - a new programmable camera manipulator specially designed for terrain
 * VirtualPlanetBuilder compatibility -- mix VPB databases with osgEarth layers
