Dear OSGeo & GeoForAll,

Please indulge me three (3) points to make here,

(1) the ESA-NASA collaboration on WebWorldWind,

(2) the Explorer ^starter app^ and

(3) the WorldWindServerKit (GeoServer) with integrated layer viewer, the Explorer (again).

(1) ESA-NASA Collaboration

ESA and NASA are working jointly to advance the ESA-NASA WebWorldWind platform, https://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/web/. ESA has built several apps with it, including the EO Browser for http://sentinel-hub.com/

(2) The Explorer

This info is good for GSoC students, SME’s, OSGeo aficionados, and a world hungry to be on ‘one-page’ for spatial data. To that end s ^starter app^ the WorldWind Explorer is there for Earthlings to possibly begin working in concert with each other on those common solutions they all need, i.e., urban infrastructure management, weather, climate research, first-responder stuff, etc.

  *   The WorldWind Explorer web app framework:
     *   http://explorer.worldwind.earth
     *   https://github.com/NASAWorldWindResearch/WorldWindExplorer<https://github.com/NASAWorldWindResearch/WorldWindExplore>
     *   This is an active project undergoing rapid development at the moment (in my spare time)
     *   A way to play with it live! http://jsbin.com/nomafey/edit?js,output<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fjsbin.com%2Fnomafey%2Fedit%3Fjs%2Coutput&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ca8f7fc1c35d1445e8b3208d559452ff6%7Ce84163c85e634b53bd6912dc8398ef96%7C0%7C1%7C636513076086549154&sdata=rPVvveJkSA4hXygyPJJSx93a1tjGiSv8p7VTRt9wQP4%3D&reserved=0>

(3) The WorldWindServerKit (WWSK)

  *   The Explorer is now integrated into NASA's GeoServer distribution, the WorldWind Server Kit (WWSK, ‘whiskey’)

     *   https://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/serverkit/
     *   https://github.com/NASAWorldWind/WorldWindServerKit
  *   The WWSK is scale-able, it can be deployed to a server or run standalone on a laptop.
  *   An agency could host a WWSK server (GeoServer) on the internet or an intranet.
  *   An agency could publish their fuel models and maps in their WWSK server(s).
  *   WWSK can access data/maps/imagery from other remote Web Map Service (WMS) servers, thus a WWSK server could be configured to provide a single point of entry for many WMS services.
  *   If you advance ~2:34:00 (at 2 hours and 34 minutes) into this ‘Education’ session at ESA Earth Observation conference last September, you’ll see and hear Bruce describing ‘whiskey’: https://livestream.com/ESA/OpenScience2017/videos/163470616<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flivestream.com%2FESA%2FOpenScience2017%2Fvideos%2F163470616&data=02%7C01%7C%7Ca8f7fc1c35d1445e8b3208d559452ff6%7Ce84163c85e634b53bd6912dc8398ef96%7C0%7C1%7C636513076086549154&sdata=T18RFlr0S3pAJUAJVDNZpoTVK4sbPjNwUG7wwzfE6jI%3D&reserved=0>
