ArcGIS Explorer is a free downloadable application that offers an easy way to access online GIS content and capabilities. With ArcGIS Explorer, you can connect to a variety of free, ready-to-use datasets hosted by ESRI. Combine these with your own local data or other 2D and 3D Web services to create custom maps and perform spatial analysis.

Version: ArcGIS Explorer Build 500
it's free (free of charge). Can interact with most popular.GIS formats. You can do search, geocoding, thematics analytics, and customize map graphic properties, to better fit your basic mapping needs
Contrary of the prior review, I can make a difference beetwen the mapping engine and the data maps. Arcexplorer is the engine. For those confronted with ESRI, well, it's an ESRI product.
A nice and powerful mapping engine. It introduces you (freely) to a world of mapping services. If not enough it make possible for a workgroup to share data maps, and put your business in a digital map without effort or expense.
