3D data in the Moab, UT area

We lost another much beloved server today on May 3, 2019. Worldwind was one of the original 3D visualizations projects and they were kind enough to allow public access to their DEM/elevation data as well as worldwide Landsat.

Funding shortage finally forced NASA to shut down the project, but luckily there are other options for TopoFusion now. Version 5.55 restores access to both elevation downloads and Landsat. As an added bonus the elevation data is even higher resolution than before.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.
