Blue Marble Next Generation

The Blue Marble Next Generation is a not an 'improved version' of the old Blue Marble - it is, in fact, based on an entirely new image/dataset, and it includes separate imagery for each month of the year specific to the current layer.

Blue Marble layers in WorldWind

Blue Marble Next Generation comes into WorldWind in several layers - this causes it to be a much more significant and complex component of WorldWind than its predecessor.

To view the different layers, it is necessary to select them in Layer Manager

Blue Marble Base

This is the layer which lives below all other visible layers . . .

Blue Marble Shaded

A nice, topographically shaded month-to-month record of the Earth in 2004

Blue Marble Shaded + Bathy

Same as above, but with the addition (merging) of NOAA bathymetry data
