Java WorldWind

It is here… So I think the opened the door a bit too soon, since the streaming of tiles is painful. But once you get some tiles it is really fast in their demo app. Much faster than GE. (big picture here)Going back to my home turf

And the labels always face you even when you rotate the earth (big picture here):

oooh pretty labels

So fun to play with though they definetly need to work on getting the data out there faster. It responds nicely to movement and now I want to see if it can read KML. If so then this plus geoserver make me a very happy man….

Maybe more to follow…

    I’m pretty sure we won’t even need KML for WW to talk to GeoServer. The old WW used WMS, and I’m sure the new one will too. But we’re looking in to super regions with KML, and we should hopefully be able to use the same caching scheme we’re using there to get lightning fast speeds with WW. And who knows, maybe we can even start bundling GeoServer with WW, since they’re both java.
