The view of our spinning globe from outer space is and will be breathtaking forever. This handy tool shows an accurate NASA longitude & latitude map location projected onto a 3D globe of the earth. A small pink circle pinpoints your current geo-location based on iPhone's GIS data and iPod's triangular Wi-Fi calculation. The 3D projection of the globe rotates slowly on its axis to simulate the earths real rotation. Swipe the globe to the west & east to change the rotation direction. 3D GeoGlobe is loaded with features & functionality. It will show your current direction on a 360Ã?Â° compass rose, your altitude all while reading your average velocity in 5 different units of measure of your choosing (i.e. m/s, km/hr, ft/sec, mph, and nautical knots). Exact variance values for current horizontal and vertical accuracy of the received signal are also displayed. For the world traveler, either physically or virtually, Geo-Globe provides an accurate clock showing your local time and the relation to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time ) or UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Perhaps the most beloved feature is the ability to save photos of the displayed screen to share with friends & associates or to help you remember the location of special events or things. The 3D Geo-Globe application may be displayed (and saved to photos) against a black or white background. Landscape & Portrait views are supported and seamlessly transitioned with device rotation. Of course a 'Map it' button taking you to GoogleMaps is included to provide you with the current mailing address and travel directions, to accompany your 3D global position.
