The award-winning 3D Weather Globe series adds a new dimension in this Deluxe Edition with 3D close-up views of the earth. You don't just look at the Andes mountains from above — now you can tilt the Earth view so you can fly through them. With realistic realtime weather in 3D, you can watch the first snow in the arctic, see the sun rise over the Hawaiian islands, safely observe a solar eclipse, or find your favorite constellation in the night sky. And of course you'll get a complete weather package from dew point to wind chill factor, overlaid on the highest resolution maps ever created for the entire Earth — ten times more detailed than in the standard edition. Beautifully rendered 3D cloud cover is generated throughout the day from satellite data provided by CustomWeather, a professional weather service who provide feeds to Reuters and other news services.
