This paper presents possible solutions to the problem of interactive digital globe publishing on the Internet in connection with the recently opened Virtual Globes Museum. It describes the processing method of two possible source materials: globe prints and photographs. The visualization of the results is realized in two different ways. The first one is a 3D virtual world created using the VRML language. The second one is a special “globe layer” in KML, which can be used in the Google Earth software. The advantages and disadvantages of each solution are also examined.
