Gaia 0.1.1 – NASA maps version of Google Earth

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Linux, Site News, Solaris, Utilities, Web Apps

The first release of Gaia 0.1.1 has been released. Similar to Google Earth, Gaia uses NASA maps instead of Google Earth. This release fixes all previous common bugs and improves the system build. The application is an open source 3D interface of Earth viewer, with GPS support.

Some of the change logs are:

  • * Fixed failure to run on displays with 16bit color depth
  • * Fixed compile under OpenBSD (+improvements in SCons stuff)
  • * Fixed bug with navigation going mad and not working on some systems
  • * Fixed crashes on SMP (thanks for contribution)
  • * Google Earth imagery support removed
  • * NASA World Wind imagery support added
  • * Build system improved
  • * On-disk image cache tweaked (but no fast indexed storage for now)

It is important to note that the data does not belong to Google. The developer has removed any Google support from Gaia. The application is also licensed under certain conditions, which include inability for third parties to access raw data.
