Submission + - Is there any OSS alternative to Google Earth? (gearthblog.com) 1

aws910 writes: Today, I fired up Google Earth to find that the "points of interest" category had been removed, and a single checkbox is in its place. Certain layers are now entirely inaccessible. Google triggered a user revolt, but admitted fault, and promised to restore full functionality someday. In the meantime, I've found a lack of plausible alternatives. Bing seems nice, but Moonlight crashes the browser on any machine I use, and I'd rather use OSS anyway... which made me realize there doesn't seem to be a good open-source alternative to Google Earth. Am I missing something? Maybe a project out there that needs a dev?
