Favored Freeware: Google Earth

Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps, and the power of Google Search to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips. Google Earth puts a planet’s worth of imagery and other geographic information right on your desktop. View exotic locales like Maui and Paris as well as points of interest such as local restaurants, hospitals, schools, and more.

Pros: Google Earth makes the entire globe searchable by addresses or keywords with high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery, 3D terrain, 3D buildings in select cities, points of interest (such as hotels, gas stations, restaurants, schools, and parks), and the ability to view and print driving directions. Google Earth is a cross-platform application for Mac and Windows.

Cons: None significant.
