2D graph animation on WorldWindJava canvas?


Perhaps there are some of you using NASA's worldwind in WWJ form. I just started and set up everything in NetBeans, so that the latest WWJ runs there with jogl and co. I tested it with basic demo code.

My aim is to display a graph on the WWJ canvas, that will be updated regularly and will be animated in this way. It will be a 2D graph of a dataset, that will be computed in the background and the WWJ programm has to read and display it.

Do you have some tips and EASY examples/tutorials for how I can do that?

Hi, I was able to insert a jfreechart chart, but I haven't been able to "update" the chart yet, could you help me?

So you added a renderable layer called creditsLayer which displays an image. A simple (maybe a bit crude) way to update the image is to dispose the layer (creditsLayer.dispose()) and re-add it with another image and after worldWindowGLCanvas.redraw(). As the screensaver won't update too often this might be acceptable. Or you can have different layers for each image you have and enable/disable them as you need and redraw the canvas. HTH
