Bringing NearMap to WorldWind
I promised myself I will do this soon and it has been a month or so since I thought about it. NearMap provides a nice Google like URL resource to pull tiles from and WorldWind provides 3d perspective (since admittedly the NearMap elevation is strange at times). The projection is not quite right in the on-the-fly transform from Google Projection to LatLon, I am using the Mercator projection built-in worldwind. Anyway enough talk screenshot time. Here are couple of Microsoft Bing Maps vs NearMap. I hope I will do the maths for the 900913 projection right soon and fix up the little inconsistencies.
