AbstractThe WorldWide Telescope(WWT) is a scientific visualization platform which can browse deep space images, star catalogs, and planetary remote sensing data from different observation facilities in a three-dimensional virtual scene. First launched and then open-sourced by Microsoft Research, the WWT is now managed by the American Astronomical Society (AAS). Hierarchical Progressive Survey (HiPS) is an astronomical data release scheme proposed by Centre de Donnees astronomiques de Strasbourg (CDS) and has been accepted as a recommendation by International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA). The HiPS solution has been adopted widely by many astronomical institutions for data release. Since WWT selected Hierarchical Triangular Mesh (HTM) as the standard for data visualization in the early stage of development, data released by HiPS cannot be visualized in WWT, which significantly limits the application of WWT. This paper introduces the implementation method for HiPS dataset visualization in WWT, and introduces HiPS data projection, mesh rendering, and data index implementation in WWT. Taking Chang'E-2 lunar probe data as an example, this paper introduces how to convert planetary remote sensing data into a HiPS dataset and integrate it into WWT. This paper also compares the efficiency and memory consumption of WWT loading its native data and HiPS data, and illustrates the application of HiPS in scientific data visualization and science education in WWT.
