Build Status

The Earth Viewer - Explorer is a 3D globe geo-browser web application built with the Web WorldWind 3D globe library and the React framework and Bootstrap library. Web WorldWind is an open-source virtual globe SDK developed jointly by NASA and ESA.

This project provides a feature-rich, responsive, customizable web app ready to be deployed to your site, including:

  • Initializing WorldWind with 3D globes and/or 2D maps
  • Configuring and managing layers and settings
  • Place name searches and geocoding
  • Creating placemarks
  • Going to locations
  • Multi-globe support
  • Plus, automatic deployment to GitHub Pages

The Explorer was cloned from the worldwind-react-app project.
