Open and view arbitrary surface images and elevations that have an accompanying world file.
After clicking the open button and selecting the desired image or elevations file, the program status will change to
Loading while WorldWind installs the selected data. Wait until the status changes to Ready. The data will have
finished installing and will be ready for viewing.
Image and elevation files that you wish to load must be accompanied by a world file, or they will fail to load. The
world file can be identified as the file with a file extension consisting of three letters. The first two of these
will be the first and last letters of the image or elevation file type, e.g. tf for a tiff file, or jg for a jpeg
file. The last letter will be a double.
For example, a world file accompanying a jpeg file would have the extension .jgw :
image.jpg // image file
image.jgw // accompanying world file
