How to create an interactive globe

Hi, I was thinking about creating a program, similar to Google Earth, where you’ll have a globe. With this globe, you can zoom into any country or what have you. You can also search for any city, or land mark etc. Only difference is, the one I’m planning to create is more basic and will not include pictures, roads, or street names. Do you have any ideas about how I might go about doing this?

Basic Components:

-Search option

  • city location

  • state location

  • When you click on a city or state, it can also pull of various facts about that city or state

Thank you
