Google Earth Alternatives

Google Earth is described as 'lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places, and share with others' and is a leading Map service in the travel & location category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Google Earth for a variety of platforms, including Online / Web-based, Android, iPhone, iPad and Android Tablet. The best alternative is OpenStreetMap, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Google Earth are OsmAnd, Organic Maps, Marble and NASA World Wind.

Google Earth alternatives are mainly Map Services but may also be GPS Navigation Services or Weather Forecast Tools. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Google Earth.

    OSM is a repository of maps. Although it is excellent, it is not a software and doesn't have many of the 3D functionalities Google Earth has.
