  • Hi,

    You cannot avoid the using Excel. The best you can do is to send data to excel programmatically and that can be send to wwt using the wwt APIs.

    The wwt apis can take data in a specific format similar to excel.

  • You can write a middle-ware program using the LCAPI to talk to SQL and send data to WWT.

    This is the same API the Excel plugin uses, so you can bypass Excel if you want to code yourself.

    here is the link to the Layer Control API
