Current revision

This Road Map should give an indication of the near future of the NASA World Wind project. NASA World Wind provides standardized access to public domain scientific data. This data is useful for NASA mission planning, scientific research, government activities, education, and public interest, while also readily allowing for the customization necessary to serve varying needs.
