    I was looking for google maps with multi-touch but unfortunately I couldn't find one. Instaed I found Microsoft Surface Globe. For some reason it wasn't installed out of the box on our computers but other touch pack stuff was. There aren't that many features like all the surface apps, and for some reason it is very low resolution, but it gets the job done and it is really fun!

    How to
    1. Download the software
    Touch Pack Installer for Windows 7 (239MB)

    Microsoft XNA 3.0 Redistributable Package

    2. Move XNA to C:\ProgramData\Application\Cache (its a hidden folder)
    You dont need to install it or run it, just leave it there.

    3. Double click on touch-pack-web.exe

    And thats it! Enjoy Surface Globe!

    Thanks for reminding about this package. The Surface Globe is by far the most interesting of these, but definitely worth having. BTW, I found the XNA file created itself and doing so on my own caused problems. YMMV>
