WorldWind project shut down, this site probably will be too.

Hello all,

With the recent announcement that the NASA World Wind project has been shut down ( there is really very little reason to continue running this forum, and as NASA staff were providing most of the moderation and responses it will likely fill up with spam shortly.

Unless something changes in the near future, I will be shutting down as well as this forum, as it is no longer useful. Most of the data on WWC is referencing the legacy C# version of World Wind anyway.

    Just saw this news:

    Can someone explain the reasoning and the short notice? Will there be any opportunity to mirror the data servers?

    Any chance Worldwind will be brought back to life in the future?

    Same, even if i've built my own version, it can't run without the worldwind servers.... !!!
    Why not use a REST kind of tiles like <server>/x/y/z.jpg images, that don't need any kind of maintenance ?
    And deliver at least the elevations data in a way of another ?
    That would be good
    Is the web version impacted too ? It uses the same servers no ?
    Anyway I'm sad these days.

      I'm sad too. I think our only hope is the community comes together to find alternate solutions.

        I think that's a possibility, but there is significant cost associated with running that type of free data service.

          I was working on this app using NASA Worldwind as my maps. I just tried using it and it seems that i can't see the maps anymore. Did they turn the map servers off already? Whats the future? Are we going to be able to get those maps or maybe someone in the community will be able to run with it?
