Add-ons are small extensions that add new functionality to World Wind. There are four different types of add-ons: data layers, camera scripts (aka scripts), plugins (aka MashiScript) and imagery.

A list of add-ons can be found at the Add-on list.

Data Layers

Data Layers are bits of information that can be shown or hidden on the planet in World Wind. A layer can contain any of images, text and trails.

Camera Scripts

Camera scripts are a prerecorded series of view changes and text display that can be run from within World Wind.

A C#/VB/JScript.NET plugin engine that allows your to create code modules in those languages. Only available in version 1.3.2 and above.
