I try to create Java Swing Desktop application which show Road map of some area in JFrame.
But pc not connected to internet it will be in LAN.
Map should be like if we scroll the mouse we go down from height in map. Like zooming the area.

I try to find out by google i get lots of forum links but each showing me.
1. I have to do web application.
2. Google not support 'without internet' map facility.
3. I should use lots of jpgs which store in folder for showing map from various height so it look like when we see any map in Google Earth application.

I found goworldwind.org but not clear understanding right now.

Any clue/idea how should i do?

I don't know about WorldWind, but check out https://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2007/10/30/building-maps-into-swing-app-with-jxmapviewer.html. It can use either NASA's BlueMarble maps or OpenStreetMap in desktop apps. Not offline, though, which would anyway result in a big chunk of data to ship with your app.

Thanks for reply Ulf Dittmer.
I will study given link.
Yes i hope i have to use 'big chunk of data' because i have to show only particular road which connect 2 cities. but with zooming facility like google map.
If cities change then 'big chunk of data' also change but i have to write code only 1 time if possible.
