    Ho do you set that up Stewart? If I focus on the Statue of Liberty, for example, I can't get World Wind to get in anywhere near as close as Google Earth. With Google Earth you can make out the blobs that are tourists around the statue, but with World Wind, I can only get it to show a grainy picture in which I can just make out the statue itself.

    The best place to try is Washington. A lot of America is covered, but for some reason, NY isn't that well done. Use the different satellite images as well.

    Re: Google Earth

    Seems you have to be careful with some types of graphics cards. Some refuse to work in OpenGL where as others don't like DirectX.

    Re: Google Earth

    I have downloaded the free version of google earth onto three machines now. On all three when I run it, it connects to the servers ok. But all I can see is stars. Then when I ask it to go somewhere, the stars start to move and then the screen turns green, but I can't see any images of land. I have update DirectX and latest graphic drivers but to no avail. The OpenGL mode just crashes.

    My graphics is onboard but has 32mb ram. I have tried it on a Dell laptop too. I have disabled the XP firewall. I can't understand it, when google earth is running, it says it is streaming at 100%.

    So what's happening?

    Mark,

    Just a thought, install it on your laptop, take it home, and if it works at home, but not at NCTC, you've got some idea where the problem lies **cough** CLEO !!!

    I did think it might be CLEO. It wouldn't surprise me. Have you tried it yet?

    It works here in Poulton - with an ISA server between it and CLEO.

    Re: Google Earth

    Yes, but I have the feeling that CLEO have seperate rules for us in Cumbria. I think they think we are primitive. They down lock everything and we have to argue to get it opened!

    Re: Google Earth

    Yep, but you need another machine to tunnel too. For best results you'll need it on a decent connection too.

    It sounds similar to what we have provided for us by out county.

    We (IT Techies in Powys) can get assigned a IP with "relaxed" filtering - obvious porn, warez, etc is still filtered, but everything else is accessible. Really handy because getting a Access Denied page appear when getting drivers and handy software websites was WELL annoying (as you can imagine).

    mark - you might want to enquire if it is possible with your setup too

    Cheers
