World Wind is coming to Android.
Though others have generously contributed their Android virtual globe based on World Wind, currently for the NASA release, we merely have something that displays the globe with elevations, retrieves and caches imagery and elevations from the WW WMS servers, and allows you to manipulate the globe via a multi-touch interface. We’ve taken some liberties with the WW API in order to simply get started and to find optimal performance. Once we get farther along we’ll know better how much we’ll have to deviate from current interfaces. Our hope is, not much.
