World Wind Java is due to debut at JavaOne on Thursday May 10 at 10:55 AM - 11:55 AM.

NASA World Wind provides next-generation 3-D virtual globe technology for embedding in applications written in the Java programming language. It supplies a suite of Java technology-based components that developers include within their own applications, providing virtual globe functionality to any application that can benefit from it. This makes virtual globe technology available to far more people in far more domains. Because of the Java programming language's write once, run anywhere design, NASA World Wind components are available and identical on all platforms. The components perform as well as, or better than, any other known virtual-globe implementation and utilize the OpenGL® API for 3-D graphics via Java OpenGL (JOGL). This presentation introduces NASA World Wind and shows several ways of embedding it in programs written in the Java programming language. It describes how to deploy World Wind with Java Web Start software and as an applet. It also shows how to extend World Wind to visualize any 2-D or 3-D information in the context of an accurately modeled 3-D Earth with terrain.

Check back at this page often as it will become the community portal for World Wind Java development.
