The software provides an accessible and supportive environment for students to explore, interpret, and analyze scientific data in a manner which allows them to emulate the work of actual scientists.

What's New?

September, 2008. A recent change to Quicktime is causing WorldWatcher 3.0.5 for Windows and previous versions to crash. This problem occurs with versions of Quicktime newer than 7.2. All Windows users should upgrade to WorldWatcher version 3.0.6, which fixes this problem.

WorldWatcher 3.0.5 for Macintosh and Windows was released in August 2007.

  • WorldWatcher 3.0.6 fixes the compatability problems with versions of QuickTime greater than 7.2.
  • WorldWatcher 3.0.5 for Macintosh adds certain files required by the Investigations in Environmental Science text that were missing in previous releases.

As of November 1, 2007 the GEODE Initiative is no longer able to provide end user support for WorldWatcher. If you purchased WorldWatcher from It's About Time, and you are in need of technical support, you should contact It's About Time directly.
