  • NASA World Wind Java Demo Applications and Applets http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/java/demos/ NASA World Wind Java Demo Applications and Applets Last modified March 5, 2010 This page gives you access to a number of World Wind Java example applications or applets, and user applications of the SDK. World Wind Java Example Applications [-] Application Template This is the most basic usage of the SDK. It shows the default globe with the default layer list and panel. It features the Earth with SRTM Plus elevation and bathymetry, the Blue Marble Next Generation may 2004, I Cubed Lansat 15m, and United States Department of Agriculture NAIP imagery layers among others. It also displays the Application Template stars background, atmospheric effect, compass, world map and scalebar that are common to most of the example applications. > ApplicationTemplate.jnlp - launch with Java Web Start. > WWJDemo.jnlp - features an array of World Wind capabilities: surface graticules, terrain profiling, on screen view controls, and real time manipulation of terrain vertical exaggeration. WMS Layer Manager 1 of 16 9/22/10 5:42 PM
  • NASA World Wind Java Demo Applications and Applets http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/java/demos/ This example application demonstrates the SDK WMS capabilities. It features a WMS layer panel that allows you to access any WMS server and layers. To add a server, click on the "+" tab and enter the server url. After the WMS discovery process, the list of available layers will be displayed. Select one to add it to the current globe layer list. Unselect it to remove it. WMS Layer Manager > WMSLayerManager.jnlp - launch with Java Web Start. Exporting Surface Imagery and Elevations Demonstrates how to use the SectorSelector utility to save a selected region of surface imagery and elevations to a GeoTIFF file. > SectorSelectAndSave.jnlp - launch with Java Web Start. SectorSelectAndSave Scankort Denmark Data Demonstrates high resolution imagery (0.2 meters per pixel) and elevation data (1.6 meters per pixel) served by the World Wind WMS, and visualized by the World Wind Java client. > ScankortDenmark.jnlp - launch with Java Web Start.

Media Watch on Climate Change - Knowledge Planet "The Knowledge Planet applet shows that virtual globes are not only suited to explore geographic maps, but can also serve as rendering engines for other types of imagery. It visualizes large document collections using a landscape metaphor. The peaks of the virtual landscape indicate abundant coverage on a particular topic, whereas valleys and oceans represent sparsely populated parts of the information space." "The Media Watch on Climate Change is Knowledge Planet developed as part of the IDIOM (Information Diffusion across Interactive Online Media) research project. The consortium partners behind the project share an interest in the determinants and impacts of anthropogenic climate change, and in the potential of three-dimensional interface technology to support communication and collaboration in virtual communities." > The Media Watch on Climate Change home page. IFGI Multi-Touch Wall The University of Muenster Institute for Geoinformatics is using World Wind Java for a multi-touch wall project. "We developed a Multi-Touch version of Nasa World Wind on a 7.9 x 6.2 feet tall FTIR (frustrated total internal reflection) based Multi Touch wall. This implementation is based on a multi-touch tracking library developed within the Project: Multitouch at the Deutsche Telekom AG Laboratories, which is part of the TU Berlin."
