NASA World Wind popularly known as a magnifying glass of earth (it is the crystal of variety of technologies), co-produced by the NASA, similar to bird’s eye view tool of Earth Viewr 3D (discontinued), but more powerful, authoritative and completely free.

This 3D engine of NASA World Wind allows you to see any one corner on the earth from outer space. Based on online database, World Wind can reach a very high – 15 m per pixel resolution, that means we can see clearly streets.

In addition, depends on its SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission) function, you can enjoy a 3D flight trip to the earth, experience the feeling of fly over the Mount Everest. And NASA World Wind is able to simulate an animation of variety of climate changes in real time.
