TEAMwISE is an abbreviation of "Tool for the Exploration and Analysis of Movement data Within Immersive Synchronised Environments". We aim to build TEAMwISE as a tool for collective behaviour research that is an open source, web-based application. The current implementation is built based on the Cesium platform which is an open-source JavaScript library for 3D globes and maps.

We list some developed features below.

Please contact us if you would like to access the code.
