What is FalconView?

FalconView is a mapping program developed by Georgia Tech Research Institute, a non-profit research facility of Georgia Institute of Technology, primarily for the US Department of Defense. An open-source, free edition, however, was eventually released for public use.

The program supports a wide range of base maps, including Open Street Maps and Digital Terrain Elevation Data. It also provides the user with aeronautical maps that present the user with vital information for accurate navigation of aircraft. Satellite images are likewise included as one of the features of the program.

The software's drawing utility enables the user to draw shapes on an overlay for georeferencing purposes. Modified overlays can be saved for future use. There is also an analysis tool for calculating distances between points. The user can also extend the program's functionalities by creating customized map overlays through the COM or .NET framework. The program also provides support for KML, ShapeFile, and WMS files.
