Software for annotated globe?

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.)
