EarthNavigator

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This nifty, highly customizable application lets you quickly access information about the planet. Upon launch, EarthNavigator appears as a medium-sized 3D globe in the upper-right corner of your screen, though you can adjust both the positioning and the size of the world. Hot keys let you zoom in close enough to see individual cities and highways, and you can rotate the globe simply by using your mouse. Right-clicking the globe lets you customize its appearance in a large number of ways. For example, you can change its color scheme and choose whether to display shadows and clouds. In addition, you'll find tools for calculating the distance between two points, determining the altitude in certain locations, and finding latitude and longitude measurements. The application also gives you quick access to Web-based information on individual countries and current weather patterns. About the only thing EarthNavigator lacks is detailed information on bodies of water. This program makes a great geography tutor for students, but we think plenty of other users also will find it handy.
