We are rolling out RC of Community Earth for the community to start getting involved in development and give feedback on the project.
Community Earth is our own 3D Earth Viewer built on World Wind SDK the current version is based of the Java SDK.
Nasa World Wind is a complete open source solution that lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there. Virtually visit any place in the world. Look across the Andes, into the Grand Canyon, over the Alps, or along the African Sahara.
This Cross-Platform Version of World Wind - Community Earth is designed to provide users of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux a more naturaluser interface, where users can naturally navigate through the environment using standard gestures. It allows the user to pan, zoom, rotate and tilt the globe, and lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D.
Best when paired with Community Core Vision as input provider.
Please let us know all your comments, requests and ideas on the software and look forward to working with you on making it better
