NASA World Wind + wxWidgets = WW2D

Did you heard some about GoogleEarth or NASA World Wind?
Then you must read this articel.
Pronkin started from scratch and wrote his own client, WW2D, aiming not just for a Linux build but full cross-platform support from one code base. He began work in Java but eventually switched to C++ and the WxWidgets toolkit. WW2D uses OpenGL to create image layers on screen, though -- as the name suggests -- only in two dimensions.
