Two improvements to Google Earth

  1. In wide views, it should show whole-Earth (or whole-Mars, etc) images like the Blue Marble instead of a patchwork of smaller images.
  2. There should be a “fovea” at the poles to avoid the problem of hundreds of converging strips when zoomed into the poles.  This happens for both the planets and sky views, making Polaris look like you’re going into hyperspace.
