NASA has an open source product called world wind - Probably only useful to those with broad band,  It includes a good digital elevation model.  seems to offer better detail away from the centres in Aus .  It would be great if everywhere had the ( free) access to high resolution orthophotos  that the US part does (you have to pay per view here) giving incredible resolution and 3D to give a real feel of the terrain, not just a map.
