Build Status

3D virtual globe API in JavaScript for the web, developed by NASA. The European Space Agency has provided valuable contributions to this platform since 2015. Web WorldWind provides a geographic context, complete with terrain, and a collection for shapes for displaying and interacting with geographic or geo-located information in 3D and 2D in any modern web browser. High-resolution terrain and imagery is retrieved from remote servers automatically as needed, while enabling developers to include their own custom terrain and imagery.

worldwind.arc.nasa.gov has setup instructions, developers guides, API documentation and more.
