Microsoft Visual Earth and JXMapViewer: news!
After a couple of years, I managed in having a meaningful conversation
with Microsoft about the custom use of their maps! This is thanks to a
guy who privately asked me for my TileProvider for MVE and gave me the
I've been presented a billing plan for access - which makes sense, I
don't pretend everything is free. Now, I'm trying to understand, hoping
that they will give me a reasonable answer, whether it's legal to
release code that accesses MVE and then the responsibility of opening a
contract with Microsoft is with the user of the code; or the user of the
application itself, if you deliver a package.
PS In the meantime, somebody just released a MVE adapter for NASA World
Wind - going to understand the licensing model and if it can be copied.
