Earth3D visualizes the earth in realtime in a 3D view. You can rotate and zoom the view until countries, cities and even single houses become visible (in areas where the necessary map resolution is available), and fly around. You can also embed external data like current earthquake positions or cloud data. Additional data layers can be added to the view, e.g. country flags and names. The package uses data from NASA, USGS, the CIA, and the city of OsnabrÃÂ¼ck. The data is loaded on demand over the Internet.
