Everest 3D – Climbing Everest

On March 31, 13 climbers from around the world embarked on the climb of their life – preparing to reach summit at Mount Everest. The journey is an extraordinary one and, thanks to the latest in 3D technology, you can come along for the climb.

As the climbers make their way up the mountain, they will be tracked in real-time through Everest 3D, a first-of-its-kind project developed in partnership with 3D RealityMaps, DigitalGlobe, the German Aerospace Center and Peak Freaks. Using high-resolution images and precise 3D maps, every user on the web can track their expedition and visualize the experience from home.

Everest 3D was developed through a partnership between 3D RealityMaps and commercial satellite operator DigitalGlobe. High-resolution WorldView-2 satellite images captured the Mount Everest region and were transformed by 3D RealityMaps into a 3D visualization of the highest mountain in the world at a highly precise and detailed caliber that makes this partnership truly unique. The expedition is being lead by high altitude mountain guide Tim Rippel, owner of Peak Freaks, an 8000m expedition company.
