Interesting NASA open source software



I was just browsing Sourceforge.net and looking at the most downloaded software and something from NASA caught my eye. It’s called World Wind. The link is to their home page (not the project page.) It’s Windows only, but looks very nicely done from what I can see.


It gives the ability to browse a virtual, 3d Earth with a variety of satellite imagery sources (seven?) Looks very nice. It’s a big (180 MB) download. It reminds me very much of Goolge Maps or Google Earth (the downloadable program.) It is a free download and browsing around the NASA page you can find some other software that looks like it would be interesting to take a look at.
