NASA has released World Wind version 1.3.1.1.  According to NASA:

"World Wind lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there."

This may be a useful tool for helping artists create realistic terrain for their artwork -- Take a look and let us know if it helps you!
