Dear All,

Could i also request you to inform your students (from all disciplines) about the NASA World Wind Europa Challenge http://eurochallenge.como.polimi.it/  and encourage them to apply.

This is an international competition and open to all on our home planet. See the 2013 Winners, China had one of the top teams last year. You can see last year's winning projects at http://eurochallenge.como.polimi.it/projects2013

The aim of this challenge is to inspire ideas for building great applications that serves the INSPIRE Directive and uses NASA's open source virtual globe technology World Wind.

This initiative  is co-organised by  Prof. Maria Brovelli and colleagues at  Politecnico di Milano, Italy who are part of our rapidly expanding "Geo for All" initiative and we strongly support this excellent initiative.

Best wishes,


Dr Suchith Anand
