Hands-On Introduction and Tutorial for Setting up and Running NASA's First-Class Java WorldWind Earth Model Simulation

What Is It? What is WorldWind? Well let me quote NASA’s site directly: WorldWind is an open source virtual globe API. WorldWind allows developers to quickly and easily create interactive visualizations of 3D globe, map and geographical information. Organizations around the world use WorldWind to monitor weather patterns, visualize cities and terrain, track vehicle movement,Continue reading “Hands-On Introduction and Tutorial for Setting up and Running NASA's First-Class Java WorldWind Earth Model Simulation”

Using Integrators in Matlab to Simulate the Motion of an Object

This article focuses on two types of integrators for simulating the motion of an object in Matlab (or Octave). Videos and downloadable source code are at the end of this article. Note that a free alternative to Matlab, called Octave, can also be used to run the software and this is covered here and inContinue reading “Using Integrators in Matlab to Simulate the Motion of an Object”
