PC Globe is an atlas for MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows, first released in 1990.

It offered information on 190 countries and dependencies.

Distributed on floppy disk, the program is divided into several menus that allows one to access the data.

The database includes a geographic map of the world, with the possibility to select the country of interest.

For each state there are maps and information (for example, the policy framework, the demographic situation as well as tourist information).

The minimum system requirements of the initial DOS version of the software is a 8086 processor, 640 KB of RAM and a graphics card CGA, EGA or VGA.
