Here is my BETA release of a layer generator CGI using the Mars Global Surveyor image database.
I don't know if this is a WW first. I've seen layer editors. Layer generators that spin out earthquake data, but I haven't seen anything that consults an actual database... maybe I'm wrong... I don't know.
Here it is ! http://djbarney.silentflame.com/moc2ww/

This add on is geared towards pumping out Mars Global Surveyor MOC image markers. I'm thinking of scientists that want to produce layers of MOC image collections. Images that show water features, or were taken at a certain time, and so on. The Scientist would have to create the list of those images themselves .... the add on will then create a layer from that list with correctly placed markers with image descriptions. There should also be a link on each marker to the image source page in the PDS or Malin Space Science Systems. That part isn't functional yet.
I have tested this and I can get a full XML layer that shows correctly in WW, I'd love to know if other people can get it working.
The add on could be altered to consult any mySQL database. I'm thinking of the MRO HiRise image database, for example (hint, hint... )
Watch out for Martians.
