NASA WorldWind Support
What is NASA WorldWind?NASA WorldWind is a phantastic piece of software which lets you look at the earth from a satellite's perspective. You can zoom into any area of the world down to a level where you can see (at least in theory) individual cars. However, the currently available LandSAT images are of lower resolution offering a scale which is equivalent to a 1:100000 scale of a conventional map.
Where can I get WorldWind?You can download NASA WorldWind directly from the NASA site at worldwind.arc.nasa.gov
How does PhotoGlobe support WorldWind?PhotoGlobe provides an installable plugin, which indicates the photo positions offered at the PhotoGlobe Web site by flags displayed on the WorldWind surface (for example, at the right you see the positions of a few photos of Tuscany/Italy indicated by the little red spots on the satellite image).
Of course, you can selectively turn on and off photo points of individual countries and regions by using the built-in layer manager. If you move the mouse over the photo points, WorldWind displays the caption of the photo. Clicking a photo point will bring up a browser window connecting you directly to the photo corresponding to the photo point.
Installation of the PhotoGlobe WorldWind-pluginThe installation of the plugin is straightforward and quite simple:
