Nasa World Wind 1.3.2 - Satellitenkarten der Erde

Software World Wind erlaubt es dem Heimanwender aus der Sicht eines Satelliten auf einen Ort seiner Wahl auf unserem Planeten heranzuzoomen. Das Programm verwendet dazu Karten der Landsat-Satelliten und Daten von Radar Topographie Missionen des Space Shuttles. Dadurch kann man die Oberfläche der Erde in 3D erkunden, ganz so als wäre man tatsächlich dort. Heute wurde nun die Version 1.3.2 veröffentlicht, die offenbar hauptsächlich der Fehlerbehebung dient. So wurde also eine ganze Reihe mehr oder weniger grosser Probleme beseitigt.
