Editors' Review

+
This feature-packed program pulls double duty as an educational tool and a screensaver. As you might guess from its name, 3D World Map brings a three-dimensional rendering of the globe to your PC and displays a number of facts such as population, latitude, longitude, and altitude. The program's database appears to be very comprehensive, as we noticed information on many small and lesser-known places. The trial version restricts you to a low-resolution map, but it's still not too harsh on the eyes. Our only complaint is the lack of a zoom-in tool for closer inspection. 3D World Map also acts as a highly customizable screensaver. In this respect, you can choose from several differently designed globes, adjust the speed of the earth's rotation, select the degree of ocean and land opacity, and pick from a few camera angles. Also, rather than bundling a cheesy soundtrack, the developer wisely gives you the option to use your own MP3s. Because of its versatility, we can recommend this program to a wide range of users, and geography buffs and students will find it especially compelling.

"What data?"

January 17, 2011  |  By Mirrikat

 |  Version: 3D World Map 2.1

Pros

I can't think of any.

Cons

Does not deliver what is promised in the CNET review.
Graphics are terrible.
You have to download extra files.
Absolutely no geographical information.
Expensive.
If you have a dual monitor setup it only displays on one of the two monitors.

Summary

Described as feature-packed and supposedly has lots of data from around the world. However this isn't the case. I thought this was because I had a trial version. So, I paid for the full version. There is no information and no educational value. Additionally you have to download extra textures to get the full effect and they only improve things marginally. The globe is rendered horribly and all the options for customizing the appearance mean that you have the options to set something that looks sort of okay to something that looks incredibly poor. The screensaver was ridiculously priced for what it offers. I'm really regretting the purchase.

"not very god"

August 07, 2010  |  By eastonwatcher

 |  Version: 3D World Map 2.1

Pros

like the tilting aspect and street look

Cons

for the technology today, the blur when zooming is ridiculous. The Pentagon can see match books on your coffee table through windows, but we cannot see the front of a house clearly in 3d. why i ask?

"Did not work."

December 25, 2009  |  By jhpiiiesq

 |  Version: 3D World Map 2.1

Pros

I could not tell if there were any pros.

Cons

This version requires a password. It would not start the program with the program, so I cannot comment further.

Summary

I do not know why this version is here as there is no password on this page, in the Read Me file, or anywhere else I can find one.
