NASA’s World Wind Vs Google Earth

Could NASA’s World Winds give Google Earth a run for its money? I am a big fan of Google Earth so I downloaded the 59MB World Winds program and decided to see what it is all about, you should as well. Also included in the download is World Wind Mars and World Wind Moon.

World Wind allows any user to zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth, leveraging high resolution LandSat imagery and SRTM elevation data to experience Earth in visually rich 3D, just as if they were really there. Particular focus was put into the ease of usability so people of all ages can enjoy World Wind. All one needs to control World Wind is a two button mouse.
