NASA World Wind

NASA World Wind has been around for a while, but is worth looking at if you’ve never seen it. You can basically hold the world in your hand and spin it around. Zooming is supported to the house level if you’re in the USA. Elsewhere in the world you can enjoy mountain ranges and visit countries you’d never dreamed of.

You can download it here. It should be noted that it’s quite a large download, but it’s also good to see NASA using Bittorrent to help overcome that problem.
