Fork me on GitHub

Get Started


WWSK uses Apache Maven for a build system. To build WWSK and its dependencies, run maven from the root of the WWSK repository:

$ mvn clean install


Depending on your personal preference, there are several ways to run WWSK.

  1. Deploy a standalone WWSK distribution
  2. Deploy a WAR file
  3. Run in NetBeans
  4. Run in Jetty from Maven
  5. Deploy a binary distribution

Detailed instructions for each of these options are available on GitHub.

Server work complete

Dear WorldWind Community,

The WorldWind server work announced in January is now complete. We are pleased to announce that, in addition to retiring old services, we were able to substantially improve performance on some of the existing ones. The service that saw the most substantial performance improvement was the elevations service.

We hope that you will notice these performance improvements in your WorldWind-based applications. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
