NASA World Wind 1.4.0 Final

NASA World Wind is an open-source virtual globe that lets you virtually visit any place in the world. NASA World Wind is using high resolution LandSat imagery and SRTM elevation data that allows you to zoom from satellite altitude into any location on Earth and experience a 3D rich visualization.

NASA World Wind was specifically designed for ease of use so anyone can fully enjoy the program using only a mouse. A simple, straightforward menu provides additional features and guides, navigation is performed only with single mouse-clicks and you can easily type in any location and zoom into it automatically.

NASA World Wind does not require but benefits from a video card with 3D acceleration. It does require DirectX and the .NET runtime environment. In case you don’t have them, NASA World Wind setup will provide the webpage addresses from where you can download them.

Note: NASA World Wind contains by default data you can zoom into but the program will automatically download more images after a while. The servers hosting this data are very busy and often may become unresponsive. Upgrading the necessary infrastructure is still a work in progress.
