Planetary Visions' global 1km Satellite Imagemap
is squeezed onto a single disc for one of the world's first DVDROM reference titles. As well as pre-rendered movies showing each of the continents, the user can define his or her own flightpath or fly the flight simulator in real-time across the whole of the Earth's surface. Major physical features such as rivers and mountain ranges are labelled live as they come into view.

One of the first reference DVDs, the DK World Atlas features Planetary Visions' 1km Satellite Imagemap
overlaid on digital terrain data in an interactive flight simulator, allowing the user to fly over a detailed 3D model of the entire surface of the world.
