Earth3D is a great application which is a type of alternative to other Earth-viewing programs like Google Earth.
Directly from your desktop, Earth3D allows you to zoom in and out of various places on our planet while enjoying excellent views.
The image data which Earth3D uses to create views is obtained from various open and free sources such as NASA, the CIA and USGS, among others. By leveraging this data, you can change between different views of landscapes.
Some addition features included with Earth3D are the ability to record videos and image captures.
This application is definitely fun to play around with, and refreshing to see that Google Earth does not enjoy a monopoly. Though this program doesn't beat other Earth viewers, it's still a nice alternative.
