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.

  • WorldWind Cache

    So Worldwind caches data to your local hard drive. Is there any way to "rehost" this cache so another WorldWind client could use that rehosted data as its map server?

    Thinking this could be somewhat of a bandaid for the impending Worldwind server shutdown.

    Yup! Easiest way would be to copy the cache from your local hard drive to the same location on the other machine. So if your cached data currently resides in C:\ProgramData\WorldWindData (which is the default location), copy the WorldWindData folder and paste it in the same location on the other machine.

    You can also use an external drive to store the cached data. However if you go this route, make sure to edit the DataFileStore.xml first.
