The MapKit is terrific, and 2D maps definitely have their place, but there are definitely times when a 3D globe not only looks better, but can provide a better experience for your users.

The developer of an open source interactive 3D globe library sent me a tip about his library.

It is really tough for me to describe the potential for this library so here’s a video showing an built using the library in a 2-day hackathon which you can download from the project’s repository:

You can actually download this example app in the app store (iPad only).

As you can see from the video something great about this library is not only the globe, but the fact that you can draw shapes and text right onto the globe.

The library is Whirly Globe and you can find it on the home page.

A fantastic globe component.
