Having a globe with captions on a computer is possible if you have the right tools for that. The solution that we can give you is Winglobe
. It is a miniature earth that sits on your Windows desktop.
- The world at fingertips: the whole planet can be reached from your desktop. You can turn and rotate it to any direction if you want to search for a specific location. It is taking a little place on the desktop for not to disturb you.
- Magnification: it is possible to enlarge a part of the globe for a better view. Users can also read captions of city names. With this option, it is also possible to see the boundaries between each country.
- Day and night: even if they are just in front of their computers, users will have the opportunity to know exactly what part of the world is plunged into the night and ditto for the day. Users can also get the current time in a specific place or in a particular city. Just spin the globe to have this information.
- Easy to handle and implement.
- It does not require a very powerful machine.
- Somewhat limited in some features.
