World Wind Update

World Wind screenshot Like ArcGIS Explorer (previously), NASA World Wind is another application to which I’ve been giving short shrift, a consequence of my Mac-only household. And the Java version that would run on Mac OS X and Linux that was scheduled for last September has, I guess, yet to make an appearance. Now the go-to blog for all things World Wind, as I mentioned before, is The Earth Is Square by Chad Zimmerman. Chad has a preview of the Java version of World Wind running in a web browser; he also anticipates upcoming posts about the features of World Wind 1.4, so keep an eye on his site.
