About the Dapple project
Dapple is a global data explorer designed to provide an open and optimal environment for visualizing, presenting and sharing massive quantities of geoscientific data on desktop computers. Dapple lets you browse, discover and display graphically rich data from global and corporate spatial servers – Geosoft DAP servers, NASA servers, USGS servers, and the many, many WMS servers currently available. The Dapple project is an open-source activity derived from the NASA World Wind open source project.
