What datum (reference ellipsoid) does Nasa Worldwind use?

I can't seem to find where Nasa Worldwind tells explicitly what datum they use. I need some sort of valid link.

  • For what? The display? Or the reference system for the maps? – PMF Mar 4 '14 at 9:03

    plate carree <> datum. It's the map projection, not the earth model. The first link says WGS84; the 2nd link doesn't say. – mkennedy Feb 13 '12 at 19:57
  • I would prefer a more official confirmation rather than some random guy in the Nasa Worldwind forums. – Trevor Boyd Smith Feb 14 '12 at 13:45
  • agreed...not an ellipsoid – WolfOdrade Mar 14 '12 at 20:05
