TerraExplorer Review

Fernando Ortega
Explore and navigate through a 3D simulation of planet Earth with aerial and satellite photos
A review of TerraExplorer by Fernando Ortega

TerraExplorer Viewer brings some cool 3D technology which may best be described as an alternative to Google Earth.

Just like Google Earth, TerraExplorer provides access to technology which is intended to provide a view of what certain locations look like. It can preview landmarks, streets, buildings simply by zooming in and around the planet. You can also search for certain locations, find routes, measure distances, etc

The TerraExplorer project has come a long way but may lack in terms of coolness when comparing it to Google Earth or even Bing Maps 3D. Though really, there are certain areas in Europe where TerraExplorer may provide better imaging with better resolution.

Nevertheless, the free TerraExplorer Viewer is cool to play around with and some of its features are neat.

TerraExplorer features and highlights:
  • View all terrain data and terrain overlays created with TerraExplorer Pro and TerraBuilder
  • Set the appearance of the environment in the 3D Window
  • Measure and analyze your terrain
  • Integrate TerraExplorer into your own application or website
  • Share screenshots with others who don’t have TerraExplorer Viewer
  • Share geographical information with others through dynamic presentations
  • Troubleshoot and keep track of core functionality events
