    In this statement "We no longer provide development for WW.net." What does this statement mean for .net? Who is we?

    One of the goals of the WWJ server work is to remove the sharing and resulting overload of these servers by WWJ and WW.net. So we are not encouraging or supporting any migration of WW.net to the new servers until there are mirrored server sites. Removing WWJ's use of the WW.net servers will result in performance increases for both clients.

    Here are just two things WWJ could do regarding server overload.

    1) Change the download format from .dds to .jpg. WW.net has done this and the user has the option of saving it as .jpg or converting and saving it as .dds.

    For the Digital layer (USGSDigitalOrtho) tile size:
    ~50 kb for .jpg - - over 200KB for .dds

    2) lo resolution tiles required before hi resolution will display
    If a person has no need for the lo res tiles the server should not be tied up downloading those tiles. As WWJ has the Digital layer now levels 0, 1, and 2 will never be displayed but they will be downloaded before the hi res can be displayed.

    "Removing WWJ's use of the WW.net servers ..." ???

    All the USGS layers come from Terraserver, not the NASA servers. That is just a redirect from the NASA servers to the terraserver.
