The Earth Explorer

The Earth Explorer is an easy to navigate catalog of locations which are viewable via neogeographical tools like Google Earth. But what makes The Earth Explorer unique is that once one finds an interesting thing they want to examine, one can open the location with Google Earth, Google Maps, Windows Live Local, Terra Server, or NASA World Wind. On top of that each site has links to related Wikipedia articles, geotagged Flikr photos, and more.

Sites are listed by country or by subject. To add a place is easy using the wizard provided by the site.

For geographers like me who find places like the Google Earth Community Board's way too cluttered, The Earth Explorer is a welcomed relief.
