Marble Globe is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth. You can pan and zoom around and you can look up places and roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia article.
It is also possible to measure distances between locations or watch the current cloud cover.
Marble Globe offers different thematic maps including:
* Classroom-style topographic map
* Satellite view
* Street map
* Earth at night
* Temperature Maps
* Precipitation Maps
All maps include a custom map key, so it can also be used as an educational tool for use in class-rooms. For educational purposes you can also change date and time and watch how the starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change.
Projections and Views
In opposite to other virtual globes Marble Globe also features multiple projections. You can choose between a Flat Map ("Plate carré"), Mercator or the Globe.
Marble also allows you to choose among the Earth, the Moon, Venus, Mars and other planets and is intended to be very flexible in the way you can view the maps, atlas and globes.
