+GoogleEarth (Google's famous virtual globe)
+Google Earth is a virtual globe program. It maps a version of the
+Earth by the superimposition of images obtained from satellite
+imagery, aerial photography and GIS over a 3D globe. You point
+and zoom to any place on the planet that you want to explore.
+Satellite images and local facts zoom into view. Tap into Google
+search to show local points of interest and facts. Zoom to a
+specific address to check out an apartment or hotel. View driving
+directions and even fly along your route.
+The degree of resolution available is based somewhat on the points
+of interest, but most land (except for some islands) is covered in at
+least 15 meters of resolution.
