About this app

This app allows a high quality view of the surface of our blue planet. It is divided into two areas: the rotatable, global view as an interactive globe and a high-resolution 3D map display of the earth's topography.

- Interactive 3D globe with surface, underwater and topography map
- High-resolution 3D topography map set of the entire earth's surface - divided into 22,912 individual tiles.

You can load 110 different regions on the interactive globe, which then present the many individual tiles in a meaningful way and load them automatically. The app initially only contains the textures for the globe in low resolution. All required downloads are loaded automatically from our server. A total of approx. 33 GB of data is available. The data remains in the cache on your device for offline use, but can be deleted at any time in the main menu. Furthermore, all events recorded by the GDACS, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. are entered on the globe.

The 3D topography map is based on the elevation data from NASA's Terra probe, which recorded 83° of the northern and southern hemisphere between 2000 and 2013 - resulting in the ASTER3-DEM. With version 0.10.0 the map is enriched with approx. 7.5 million place names from geonames.org. This means that all the towns, mountains, lakes, deserts and many other geographical features entered there are drawn on the map.

Use the tutorial in the app to familiarize yourself quickly or read the manual to find out which functions are in this app. As the app is still under development, some features are subject to change.

We hope you enjoy using the GlobeViewer!

As a paid app would be a 4* (lacks height multiplicator adjust outside tiles, relief is unrealistically high, maybe has a default non-0 setting). As a mixed app, the basic globe doesn't look better no matter the zoom, even the demo 8k globe looks low res (in the non-blurred zones of course). It has a demo tile mode (good quality) but the 45 seconds timer followed by adv. is too low, a minimum of 3 minutes would be decent for a demo. Works fast on my Samsung A8 2018, high-speed 4G data conn.

The 50 second Ad timing is only in the preview of HR 3D tile scenes. Ad based preview is offered to test the product. Edit: You have to zoom in to start loading the HR tiles. 8K res is max. to support older devices (RAM dependent) - global texture can't be better. As I wrote, reworking Ad timing in next version. Thank you!

Concerns: App starts but can't press any button on info panel or zoom on globe. | Expectations: Looking for high resolution sat imagery. An apl that swiches different data sets/sattelite would be ideal.
