Worldwind satellite maps[edit]

Melbourne from Worldwind
Snowy Mountains from Worldwind

For those of you who haven't played with Worldwind, I'm taking requests for anyone who wants maps done. I'll probably stick to just generating the maps (non-annotated for now). Geographical features would be an ideal use for these, as most areas of the world terrain-mapped. Yes, these are created with an open source program (provided by NASA) and free, public domain data (provided by NASA Landset/USGS). -- Chuq 06:56, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Note that the example of Melbourne at the right - it zooms in way further than this too!

Requests (I've included the ones I plan on doing - feel free to add more):

Can you get a good one of the area of the Snowy Mountains Scheme? --Robert Merkel 07:56, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Done. Not knowing the area very well, I wasn't sure of the best angle or range to get. -- Chuq 11:16, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
If you're still making these, could you please add Shark Bay, Western Australia to you list. And the Willandra Lakes Region, there's a map here for your reference [1] Thanks--nixie 10:17, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
