Earthscape Digital Globe app for iPhone (Churchill Nav)

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008
[Editor's note: At $10 this app seems a bit pricey for basic digital earth viewer ala Google Earth but the YouTube video is nifty and demonstrates the wikipedia geotags and the app is sure to wow your friends. The comments in iTunes App Store say the quality is fuzzy zoomed into local areas. I have yet to try this app myself.

Earthscape Basic is the world's first virtual globe application for mobile devices -- available now for the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch.

Our planet isn’t flat — from the breathtaking mountain ranges of America’s Glacier National Park, to Australia’s great barrier reef; from the Death Valley desert to meteor impact craters around the globe, Earthscape presents our planet as it was meant to be seen — in full 3D

With hundreds of thousands of geotagged wikipedia articles, you can learn about the geological forces that shaped our world, historic events that changed civilization, and monuments we have built in our quest to understand the universe we live in. Or perhaps you are more interested in finding out exactly where the Hollywood sign is, or where the Coliseum in Rome is located — it’s all there. If you like Google Earth on your desktop, you will love Earthscape in your palm.
