Exploring the globe is a dream for millions of people around the world; and unfortunately due to lots of different reasons it just isn’t likely to happen. Fortunately thanks to the amazing technology available today with just a computer everyone can see every part of the world without ever leaving home.

For all of the features and cool functions available in Earth Explorer it really is a bargain. Earth Explorer costs $40 for a basic license which gives you full access to all its Earth Explorer. There really isn’t any other program available which can do so many things for such a great price.
