OssimPlanetQt first time from CVS to mingw-windows
To those not in the know , OssimPlanetQt is yet-another globe viewing application. Written using the cross-platform QT Windowing Kit and OpenSceneGraph , the rendering is done using OpenGL.
The main programming language is C++ and it can use the Worldwind Servers as data source as well as standard WMS's.
I am apparently the first one to compile and run it on Windows using the mingw compiler toolchain and the QT 4.2 kit from Trolltech.
A howto will shortly appear on the ossim wiki. Just to draw a few parallels - Google Earth is also C++/OGL based and uses the QT Windowing system and draws most of its data from Digital Globe.
