With the OpenWebGlobe SDK you can create your own virtual globe applications. You can develop your new application in your favorite language like C++, C#, Visual Basic, Python.
OpenWebGlobe SDK is created by the Geomatics Engineering departement at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland.
WebViewer requires a modern web browser that supports WebGL. There's a good guide to finding one for your platform at http://learningwebgl.com/blog/?p=11.
Once you have a suitable browser, visit
see a demonstration.
1) Install Python (2.6 or 2.7) if you don't have it already. You can get python at http://www.python.org/ You also need Java installed for the closure compiler. On windows you may have to adjust the Python Path in "scripts/setup.bat".
2) Go into the scripts directory and start "download_external.py". This will download all required external files.
3) If you are using the Komodo Editor or IDE, you can download the Komodo integration. Go into the scripts directory and start "download_komodo_integration.py". This works for Windows/Linux and MacOS X. You can get Komodo editor here: Komodo Editor
For security reasons CORS must be used when downloading textures. During development this can be annoying. When using Firefox you can disable "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" in about:config and you can install the addon "Force CORS" from here: Force CORS AddOn
