Ok, this isn’t a serious business recommendation. But, I sure wish the cool data Google has been generating for Google Earth could be combined with World Wind. Google’s quality aerial photography, and 3D buildings are really nice to look at. It’s just too bad the Google Earth user interface isn’t better. Google has been spending an enormous amount of money acquiring the technology, buying the airplane time, and the computing resources to process and host their imagery. And, the results are really spectacular. This week, Google released a ton of new imagery, and new cities with 3D buildings.

Thanks Google! Now, would you pretty please create an API for your data for World Wind?
