The World Wind 2017 summer interns arrived at the orientation! They familiarized themselves with the WorldWind SDK and began exploring ideas for a project.
The interns came up with the idea of researching the effect of climate on agriculture!
They worked on wireframing and prototyping possible scenarios for the app. Additionally, they researched what types of data would be accurate indicators of climate change and its effects.
They began researching for relevant datasets and making data visible on the 3D globe using the Web World Wind SDK. Development on the project began during this period.
The web app was finessed: the interns added features such as geocomparison, opacity/time sliders, country-specific data, and improved aesthetics. This period was mostly focused on adding functionality to the project.
The interns deployed the finished project and its informational website online, and submitted the project to the NASA Europa Challenge.
