Making the Ultimate Map using OpenGL API-based Keyhole software

Jun 28, 2004

Refering to the OpenGL API-based Keyhole software,  Newsweek magazine writes: “There it is, that good old pale blue dot in all its earthly glory, right there on your computer screen. It’s a familiar sight, even from a sky-high perspective experienced only by astronauts and angels. But hold on. By mousing around and clicking, you swoop like Superman, down, down, down, to a location on terra firma. Coastlines and rivers come into view, then cities, houses and even cars. And then, with another mouseclick, you can see the roads labeled, highlight the high-crime areas and locate the nearest Chinese restaurant”
