In response to the growing demand for a visual capability to display and assimilate very large volumes of remote sensing data, a very fast browsing and animation system has been developed. The system can browse very large images (order of a few gigabyte) and animate through thousands of images in a very fast mode to support educational and decision-making purposes. It can be used by students in elementary and high schools, the general public in museums, and policy makers on their lap top computers. The system can be tailored to different applications. This presentation focusses on an educational application that displays many "layers" of data acquired at different scales; from regional to local. The data constitute sets of remote sensing images, GIS maps, photographs, text, etc
