Marble – a virtual globe ...
Marble 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 streets.
A mouse click on a place label will provide a matching
Wikipedia article. Of course Marble can do even more
for you: You can measure distances between locations
or watch the current weather and the real-time cloud
cover.
... and a polished jewel
Marble offers different thematic maps: A classroom-
style topographic map, a satellite view, street map,
earth at night and temperature and 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 change on the map.
In opposite to other virtual globes Marble also
features multiple projections: Choose between a Flat
Map ("Plate carrée"), Mercator or the Globe.
The best of all: Marble is Free Software / Open Source
Software and promotes the usage of free maps. And
it's available for all major operating systems
(Linux/Unix, MS Windows and Mac OS X).
For software developers the full feature set of Marble
is available as a library for use in other applications.
