With OpenWebGlobe you can create your own virtual globe applications.
OpenWebGlobe is created by the Geomatics Engineering departement at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland.
WebViewer requires a modern web browser that supports WebGL. You can check if your browser supports WebGL here: https://get.webgl.org/
Once you have a suitable browser, visit
see a demonstration.
Install Python 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".
Go into the scripts directory and start "download_external.py". This will download all required external files.
Linux, MacOS X
Development under Linux and MacOS is quite easy: Just go into the "scripts" directory and start make. This builds the latest version and downloads all dependencies.
CORS - Cross Origin Resource Sharing
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
