With the help of two very talented developers here (Bjorn and ShockFire), I have developed a custom World Wind plug-in. It shows a simplified version of Earth using locally cached BMNG images.
Bjorn and ShockFire are currently busy with other projects, so I need to find another freelance developer with World Wind experience to help fix a few details and cull data sets. You will be paid hourly. There are between 10 and 50 hours of work, depending on your skills.
Version Details... I am currently using World Wind 1.4 (.NET version). This is a plug-in for my own private use; the code will not be publicly released.
Example Features... The following are a few of the things you will be tasked with.
- Trim the city database to only display major cities
We'd like to be able to trim the city database, perhaps by population. This would not be a real-time purge, but a one-time purge (and stored in cache).
- Only display country boundaries
We need a way to either download select boundaries from the WW database, or trim the available cachepack boundaries. Our version of World Wind works 100% offline, so it is necessary to pre-load cities and boundaries. However the cachepack of boundaries I found includes all political boundaries, which is too much for our needs. All we need is country boundaries, and state boundaries for the United States of America.
- Eliminate border line/boundaries on water-front land
Coastal areas should not have a border/boundary. How can we do this?
etc. I have no programming skills at all, just feature requests
Message or email me for more info - firstname.lastname@example.org and use the subject line "to Nick - World Wind" or something similar. Please include your requested hourly pay rate and World Wind programming experience.
This is a fun project, I promise If you are at all curious, just email for more info - email@example.com
