NASA World Wind comes of age

Congratulations NASA World Wind development team — you have just logged your very first official complaint regarding your app’s country borders:

APA’s Europe bureau reports the regional map presented by NASA, which has created analogue of Google Earth program on, shows Azerbaijan’s Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic as territory of Armenia. This mistake was not in the Google Earth program. Taking into account that NASA is a state agency, this is a quite a serious mistake.

This must amount to something like coming of age for a mapping application — having one’s data offend far-away nationalists with chips on their shoulders.

  1. Yeah we have a lot of these type of complaints, but the borders data was not created by the World Wind team it was imported from the ‘CIA World DataBank II’.
