Satellite Imagery Virtual Globe

It was brought to my attention that NASA has released a product that shares some similarities with the popular Google Earth program. While it doesn’t include the comprehensive mapping data fo Google Earth, World Wind does had some pretty cool features. For example, using GLOBE data you can superimpose weather information on the virtual globe, SVS data to watch storms develop or MODIS data to see where current natural world events are taking place. NASA World Wind is a fun and educational way to look at some of this cool (and free!) government data.
