Update 2012

Dapple is based upon NASA World Wind project, specifically the World Wind .NET . NASA moved to a Java Based World Wind in 2006 and ceased further development of the .NET version. Geosoft continued to support the Dapple open source effort, however recent decisions by NASA to remove the BlueMarble image that Dapple was accessing as a base layer, plus the direction Microsoft has taken with .NET and Direct X has made the Dapple project direction unsustainable. For this reason Geosoft has decided to stop supporting the Dapple Open Source project.
