Small Planet for Android
What planet are you from?
Generate a small-planet from where you are and send it as a postcard to your friends!
This application makes a stereographic projection of your location on the map where Street View is available.
It is also possible to project one photograph coming from the camera roll.
Slide your finger on the screen, and then you can continuously move from a bird's eye view in the sky (mini-planet) to an insect view at ground level!
Note: You can use the application with a mouse.
