Patrick Hogan NASA World Wind projektmenedzser írja Március 22-én:

"This is an interesting ‘open source’ use of World Wind ^Java^ for dendrochronological research: http://www.tellervo.org/tutorials/mapping.php

This video might be more interesting for some basic capabilities (i.e., layers) and user interface. The web version will provide as much.

For the web version of World Wind, we still only have the growing suite of simple demos, the HTML files located here, http://worldwindserver.net/webworldwind/examples/

We are looking forward to premiering the first scientific or city management apps using ^Web^ World Wind."
