Abstract This paper has been written as documentation for the DTUsat-2 visualization project. The purpose of the project is to create an application that allows the user to get familiar with and understand the DTUsat-2 mission. This is done with computer graphics using OpenGL to create an interactive animation of the satellite and its mission. The application's expected use is for public relations only, and will have no use in connection to the actual mission. Thus the focus of the project is twofold. One goal is to make the mission and the ideas behind it clear to the user, both with respect to the mission goal and how it is achieved. The other is to make the visualization as "pretty" as possible, while still maintaining the ability to run in real time. The paper itself servers two purposes. First it explains the choices taken with regard to both the development in general and the more specic choices taken for the individual features. Secondly it explains how the implementation of the chosen features is carried out in practice, using Java and OpenGL.
