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.

Joel takes a look at a couple of software packages that do neat things with satellite imagery: Keyhole, which was taken over by Google a while back; and NASA World Wind. They’re Windows-only, so I can’t try them out —… • Continue reading this entry.
