GESO is a tool to prepare a Google Earth visualisation of the Dutch land use scenarios as created by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. This Google Earth for the Sustainable Outlook application, named GESO, forms an update of the previous VisualScan attempt. The GESO application aims to be an effective, easy and low cost way to study Sustainable Outlook data via an interactive 3D visualization that integrates the land use icon and landscape feature approach as presented in the VisualScan study. The concept and implementation of GESO are explained and many examples of using GESO are given. The final chapter concludes and discusses the results and gives content-wise and technical recommendations for follow up projects.
