Map/Satellite Image Program

Freeware: Google Earth
Freeware Type: Free for personal use
Editor's Rating: 5 out of 5
After installed Google Earth and run it, all I can say is wow!

With Google Earth, you can flying over the earth’s terrain, I even saw my house clearly by this software, it puts a planet's worth of imagery and other geographic information right on your desktop.

Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps, and the power of Google Search to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips. Bookmarking into My Places is accomplished easily. Most of the famous city can be viewed in very high resolution, even you can see the cars there. It is the best tool for you to know the terrain around your place, or travel around the world without/before you going there.

p/s: The similar freeware World Wind (in second place) provided the same feature, but it run slower and the imagery is not fully integrated compare with Google Earth.
