ArchAtlas on WorldWind
In order to use this extension you need to first have installed NASA WorldWind version 1.3 or 1.4 which may be downloaded for free from http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov. The Dynamic RSS Plugin has been tested with version 1.3.5 and 1.4 BETA. Please note that you need a fast graphics card to run WorldWind.
WorldWind is currently only available for Windows but cross-platform compatibility is is due in the versions due to be released after September 2006. We hope to update ArchAtlas on WorldWind as appropriate.
How to Use
These instructions apply to the Dynamic RSS 3.0.2 & 3 Self Extracting version:
Download the installation file above. Make sure WorldWind is not currently loaded. Now run the ArchAtlas_3_0_x installer. When you next run WorldWind, you must need to initiate the plug-in: select 'Plugin > Load/Unload...' from the WorldWind menu. In the dialogue box, select 'ArchAtlas Sites' and click 'Load'. All being well, the ArchAtlas icon will appear in the WorldWind toolbox.
If you want the plugin to load when WorldWind launches, tick the box to the right of the ArchAtlas Sites in the Plugin dialogue box.
The data is refreshed from this site automatically when you click on this icon, or when you select 'Refresh ArchAtlas sites' from the 'Plugin' menu.
Please not, unlike the Google Earth Extension, this plugin DOES NOT yet load any experimental overlays. Overlays can be seen however using the KMLImporter plugin using the Google Earth Extension. We hope to include a native version in the future.
Please also note Disclaimer regarding co-ordinate precision.
