Some background on NASA World Wind

While collecting biographical information on the presenters and panelists for the upcoming AAG meeting, I came across a few-months-old (22 Nov 05) article on NASA World Wind. Written by Microsoft to promote their .NET and DirectX technology, the article provides some details on how World Wind was conceived and designed.


If you have questions about World Wind, one of its originators, Tom Gaskins, will be participating in the AAG virtual globes activities on March 9.
