Globe Applications

Globe Applications

WorldWind users can move to virtual globe applications for exploring the world, working with data, sketching, visualizing and interacting with 3D data using free applications.

Users can also quickly create custom 3D applications using application builders, without writing a single line of code.



ArcGIS users have access to ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World, the foremost collection of geographic information from around the globe. Living Atlas includes tiled maps and imagery, elevation data, and place-name data that most WorldWind users rely on. In addition, thousands of additional data layers for the entire planet are available.

You don't need to be a developer to access Living Atlas. WorldWind users can use free applications without writing a single line of code.
