This is an add-on that shows the sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List as small icons. It looks like this:
And you can download version 0.1.5 here: whcwwinst.0.1.5.zip
The readme is found here readme.whc.txt. This is an automated installer version, that will try to determine and locate your World Wind version. If you got any problems with the installer, just PM me! In case you don't trust it, you'll find a zip-only version here, but be sure to read the readme.whc.txt!
As it says in the readme, this add-on puts a lot of strain on World Wind, especially if you're hovering above central Europe.
Please zoom in to at most 2000km above ground, before activating the addon.
If the fonts start blurring or the planet goes white, just deactivate the add-on, wait a few seconds, zoom in, then activate the add-on again.
If this doesn't help, close World Wind (even if it appears unresponding), start it up again, zoom in and try again.
The old version 0.1.4a is still available here whcwwinst.0.1.4a.zip

Also included in this version is the script for generating this addon. It might be quite useful if you want to recreate a configuration, where only a few countries are included. But usually you don't need this. If you use it, you should understand a little how WorldWind works internally and maybe know some Python. Please read the docs, and be carefull not to start downloading everything immediately from the UNESCO site, it's about 20MB or so! There's a little frontent 'wxWhcWW.pyw' that look like this:From the previous thread:
