World Wind Java SDK

Welcome:
Here you will find the World Wind SDK for Java. With this, developers can embed World Wind technology in their own applications.

Many resources are available at goworldwind.org to help you understand and use World Wind.

Current releases:

World Wind Java SDK 1.5
World Wind Java SDK 2.0 Daily Builds

The latest formal release is 1.5. Release 2.0 is under development but is very stable. The primary difference between the two releases is that version 2.0 uses JOGL 2 whereas version 1.5 uses JOGL 1. The appropriate JOGL libraries are included within each release; it's not necessary to obtain them separately.
