NASA‘s amazingly rich (& free) 3d earth viewer, World Wind (latest release) allows a detailed exploration through multiple global datasets such as temperature, satellite imagery, and even 3-dimensional models of Earth’s greatest features. Zoom in & out, fly around, find your rooftop, monitor global warming, or make your own Powers of Ten.(The file size is 171MB, but they do offer a bittorrent link.)
