CitySurf Globe is a family of Geography 2.0 Geographical Information System software, developed by PiriReis Bilişim Teknolojileri, known as a new model in mapping servers and interaction with the end user.

CitySurf Globe family models raster data, such as high resolution satellite images and aerial images, under high speeds using digital terrain model and vector geographical information systems and accordingly serves these via internet or local nets. Prepares geographical analyses and arranges the geographical data thanks to its interaction with the end user.

CitySurf Globe has an OpenGL-based viewer, which connects to the servers for streaming of content, elevation, satellite and/or airphoto imagery, roads, 3D buildings, points of interest, etc. This is similar to Google Earth, Microsoft Virtual Earth, and ArcGIS concepts.
