This addon includes Saturn, Patrick Murris's Planetary Rings plugin, moons, feature names, and some physical properties of the rings.

Note: To use the Ring Labels in World Wind 1.4, you must set Vertical Exaggeration to 1.0x.

Saturn v1.3 Installer


[edit] Version 1.1

This version updates the Saturn addon with newer Cassini imagery of the moons. It also includes the Planetary Rings plugin for World Wind 1.4.

[edit] Version 1.2

Updated with new images and newly named surface features on several moons. The Ring Labels layer requires that vertical exaggeration be set to 1.0x. Since there isn't any elevation data for this system, that shouldn't cause any problems.

[edit] Version 1.3

This version includes the newest surface maps for Saturn's moons, minor placename updates and vectors of Titan's winds.

[edit] Usage

To view Saturn, select Saturn in World Wind's File menu.

Currently the additional ring data consists of:

  • Schematic ring diagram
  • Radio wave transmittance

These are activated by selecting the appropriate ring map in the PlanetaryRings cofiguration in Layer Manger (right-click PlanetaryRings and select properties, then choose the desired ring texture). Legends for these are turned on in 'Ring Legends' in Layer Manager.
