OssimPlanet strikes back
Want multi-platform Open Source Earth Viewer, backed up by a powerful image processing library, coded in C++ with a QT Gui, then ossimPlanetQt is your product.
I did a fresh build on windows today with mingw. It now supports World Wind imagery layers via a plugin (WMS is supported as well) and allows drag and drop import GDAL supported raster( a functionality I added to World Wind recently). It also does blend, swipe and other image operations on the GPU and uses an accurate ellipsoid model of the earth. The only hitch is streaming terrain but that is being worked on. Who cares about filling up a harddrive with SRTM tiles when you can run this on 20+ screens?
