Google Earth, MSN Virtual Earth 3D and NASAs World Wind: comparing 3D-Earth viewers



Google Earth, MSN Virtual Earth 3D and NASAs World Wind: comparing 3D-Earth viewers



GIM International 21(11): 13-15



A 3D-Earth viewer enables navigating through the virtual environment and can be easily downloaded from the internet. How might this rapid development support steady, long-term development of institutions such as Rijkswaterstaat, the roads and water regulatory authority of the Netherlands? The authors consider and compare three standard 3D-Earth viewers: Google Earth, MSN Virtual Earth 3D and NASA's World Wind.
