EarthBrowser 3.0 to be released soon

It's been hard keeping quiet about it for so many months, I'm really excited about all the great new features.

Some of the major new features are:
- Supports 90% of KML
- US Doppler radar
- Rain/Snow/Temperature forecasts

Version 3 is not just another 3d globe, but will revolutionize virtual globes for reason's that will be obvious when you first run it.

If you are a customer and would like to participate in the Beta program, please drop me an email and state any relevant testing experience (not necessarily required, but helpful).

Here is a small preview:


That's all for now.

Hey Matt. I use EarthBrowser in an educational setting and would be happy to report on version 3 in that context.

Can you see how smooth the earth looks? seems like they added the light source.
the picture has a texture wrapped around the polygon object, but it seems like some shadows are created by the polygons themselves.
where the light source should be positioned? at the same orientation as the sun.
