A couple of professional organizations I'm associated with would like to have a "annotated on-screen globe" on which they could place clickable links marking local chapters or sections around the world.. Idea would be that you could view this 3D globe on a web page, or maybe in a free-standing app; rotate it with the mouse; see the locations of local units marked on it; and click on these. Anyone know of available software, or a Mathematica package, to create something like this? (Obviously, could also be done more easily -- in fact, _is_ quite often done -- using one or more planar maps, without the 3D glitz. Pointers to not too complex software to create this kind of thing on your own would also be appreciated.)
