Amazon.com Review

The Eartha Global Explorer DVD is a terrific way to literally see the entire world, but only if your computer hardware is up to task. Contained on this single DVD is a 3-D representation of earth that can be rotated, zoomed in on, and viewed from any angle. Major cities, roads, and points of interest are also depicted, and somehow there was still enough room left on the DVD to include audio descriptions of most place names and attractions on the maps. Best of all, it's dirt cheap.

DeLorme touts the software's ability to plot a course anywhere on earth, but we imagine few people would trust a product like this with their global vacation plans. The real draw of the software is its detailed 3-D view of the world, based on satellite imagery. It's easy to see the topographical features of, say, Costa Rica from a straight top-down view, but Eartha Global Explorer let us drop our altitude, change the viewing angle, and see the 3-D terrain from perspectives that we'd never be able to view from the real world.

The interface makes it easy to zip over the terrain and whirl around to change your viewpoint, but smooth performance requires a fast computer processor and a beefy video accelerator card. The program allows for software rendering, where your computer's CPU shoulders most of the graphics-crunching load, but it is worthless. Without an appropriate DirectX-compatible video accelerator, the maps look bad and are impossible to accurately rotate; the graphics simply can't keep up with your inputs. If you have a cutting-edge PC, however, Eartha Global Explorer is an educational toy that anyone interested in geography will enjoy. --T. Byrl Baker ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Global Explorer falls short on details
It's impressive list of features may not work on every machine. Although I was initially amazed at the 3D map of the world, the 2D travel routing never functioned on my machine despite repeated contact with tech support. I found their tech support personnel friendly and prompt to respond to email, but they were unable to help correct a problem with a DLL file that kept it from running on my system, even though my system is far superior to the minimum requirements. The DVD installed a version of MSJET35.DLL that the software refused to recognize.

The road maps are fine for city to city travel, but lack the street level detail available in many competing products. Due to the DLL file problem the guided tour and local information features would not work.

More detailed maps and travel instructions are available through web based travel routing sites. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good mapping software
I have both Delorme Streets and Microsoft Streets and Trips. I usually use the Delorme product, because it is faster and produces a better map. Both products suffer from having small inaccuracies at the very local level. Whether you encounter one where you are looking is kind of the luck of the draw. Despite small inaccuracies, the resulting maps using Delorme Streets are usually more than good enough to enable you to find your way.

The Delorme Streets gives VERY accurate mileage assessments from one place to another, which alone makes it worthwhile. I use it anytime I am planning a trip and have always found it very useful.

2-0 out of 5 stars Street Atlas USA 9.0 - Don't get your hopes up.
This is an OK product. I've used Map-N-Go for several years and Street Atlas basically is road travel software with street level capability. I just bought it, and tried it. If you are using it for city to city funtions, it will do fine. If you are using it primarily for street to street, it might raise your blood pressure. I tried it for my city, Seattle. I mapped from the airport to my house. It referenced a street for departing the airport that was not apparent at the airport. Then it directed me to take a road off of the highway exit that did not exist. I ran Yahoo map with the same stuff. It gave a flawless performance, using the same signs/postings that are at the airport and it gave the proper street to exit to my home. The next day we used it to map about 8 houses on our house hunting list to look at. Several times it referenced street names that were not posted or not commonly used. Bottom line, if I had been given a trial first, no question that this software funtions poorly on the street level. Your mileage may vary.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Last Gasp of a Once-Great Company
Version 9.0 is still the best mapping software I have used, and I have tried many. Yes, it is now dated, and it's maps are dated, it being 2003 as I write this. I notice a bad review just above mine that mentions tabbed interface which is the later (and IMHO inferior) SA 200x versions, someone posted that review under v9 by mistake. This version is not MAXIMUM CAPABILITY, it is clean simple and trim, like mapping software should be. It does a limited number of things, but figuring out how to do the basics is largely intuitive to a Windows user. It doesn't have the atrocious tabbed interface Delorme adopted later.

V9 has many good things:
1) FAST and efficient!
I run my V9 on an old ThinkPad 560X (Pentium 233MMX) and it runs just great! Try that with newer mapping software. I like that I can leave my cheapo laptop in the trunk and not worry if it gets stolen after all it only cost me a hundred bucks off EBay.
2) SIMPLE
Using the classic Windows interface it's easy to operate. It may not have the new features of 2004 like voice commands or radar serch but then again it's not bloatware. It does the limited set of things it does, very well.
3) Back-on-track!
I love this feature if I overshoot the exit it will recalc and tell me how to recover.
4) Map extraction
You can run the map extractor and install only the states you need if you don't have enough space for the whole US. Nice! My 560X doesn't even have a CD-ROM so I installed the states I needed over the network and never have to refer to CD's again.
5) Voice navigation
Okay, voice is not the best and not changeable, but it does give me audible cue I need to exit soon or whatever
6) Quick keys. There are quick keys like page-up/page-down to zoom and arrow keys to recenter that are easy to find in the dark on most keyboards or in my case a slimline IBM numeric keypad.

Yes it has some issues and I have a wishlist of items I wish it had like select the voice to use, etc. but still the best out there! I just wish Delorme would sell map updates for this veteran. Ah well...

Unfortunately Delorme has become fixated on it's new tabbed product and discontinued this excellent product. Avoid SA 2003 and 2004. Find a copy of V9 on Ebay or in the bargain bin and use it for a few more years until something better comes along.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than in car GPS systems.
I use this product all the time. I have used a variety of GPS systems in different cars. This system, is by far, much better than all the rest. It even tells you radio stations in your area.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product Wrong Seller
...This product works excellent, especially when integrated with DeLorme's 8 channel GPS Receiver

I have used their product for years staring with version 5.0 through version 9.0 and in terms of usability and accuracey you won't find a better piece of equipment for your money. This product will operate through most Palm/Handheld devices or for the over the road traveler like myself integrating both the hardware and software is easy and effective with the use of my laptop. I have used a variety of other brands like TravRoute in addition to the weak handheld GPS units like Garmon, Magellan and nothing in my "opinion" gives you more bang for the buck than DeLorme.

Word to the wise don't be too quick to get their latest version; Street Atals 2003. It's very new and very different and resembles their X-Map Business software which I found to be much more cumbersome and less functional in many ways. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars PC not best format for map reading (+XP compatibility tip)
I love big colorful maps. So I thought this is the program for me. But, the program is just OK, I was hoping for better but it is just plain difficult to read huge fold out maps on a PC. However, if you put your resolution up to as high as possible 1280x1024 works pretty well (I'd never use this normally), it improves things noticeably.

I ordered this then saw the comments on XP compatibility. Absolutely no response from the help desk, however: I have XP and it works fine.

You just need to use the XP compatibility option as follows:

1. Right Click on CD-Rom on My computer and hit explore.
2. On the setup icon on the CD right click and hit properties
3. Select Compatibility tab and select Windows 95.
4. Hit Apply and close box
5. Double Click on Set-up Icon and the program will install

The Website actually mentions that this program won't work on XP and offers no guidance. Bit of an embarrassment.

Good luck and regards

1-0 out of 5 stars won't install on XP, no support or solution
I got the deluxe version and got stuck for $50, same problem as reviewer above. The thing won't install and there is no support or fix form National Geographic, or Broderbund, who is listed on the box as the distributor. I would have expected better form such a big name company(s)!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you plan on keeping your computer up-to-date
This product won't even install on Windows XP.

It's developers have, perhaps, included some proprietary tweak to prevent unauthorized use of the product.

Amazon.com Review

Some may read it for the articles, but some of us are self-assured enough to admit that we like to look at the... maps. Now you can scope out 109 years of cartographical excellence with National Geographic Maps, a set of eight CD-ROMs that will keep you glued to your PC for hours on end, poring over transatlantic cable diagrams, finding the old name for Rwanda, or even learning a thing or two about the history of mapmaking.

Installation is easy, and the interface is as attractive and intuitive as you would expect from the institution devoted to educating the public about the world. Fire it up and search for a particular map or a place on a map, then choose which of many from 1896 to 1995 meet your needs. Browsing the maps is fun, too--zooming and sweeping over vast distances can be almost dizzying.

Whether or not you're a researcher, you'll love the bookmark and log-in features, which remember your past searches and help you find facts fast. When you want to kick back for a while, take one of the thematic tours or guided lessons on mapmaking that are every bit as powerful and well-made as National Geographic's television specials. It's hard to beat National Geographic Maps for sheer eye-straining fun; better still, it makes you smarter! --Rob Lightner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Just like the good 'ol days
For those of you who have fond memories of poring over Nat'l Geographic maps when you were younger and the world was a much bigger place and very exotic place, getting these CD's was like a trip down memory lane for me. I used to spend hours as a kid going over the maps in each issue when I was around 12 years old (and older), and I probably learned a lot about the world in the process.

So when I saw this collection I purchased it. I haven't had a subscription to N.G. in 30 years, so I had some catching up to do. I found checking out all the new maps I had missed to be almost as much fun as when I was a kid, except now you can sort and search for them by topic and get info much more quickly using the CDs. The only downside to this is if you request a map that isn't on the current CD (and there are 8 of them), it will tell you you have to put in the right CD. Sometimes this means a certain amount of shuffling CDs when going back and forth between different maps.

Nagivating around each map takes a little getting used to, and sometimes the print on the screen gets pretty tiny, but there is a magnification function so you can magnify anything you want and still read the articles on the maps. Overall a fun CD set to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with just like when you were a kid.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Geographic resource
This collection, spanning the entire National Geographic Society's history, is a wonderfuly tool. Each and every map ever printed by the Society is here in perfect digital clarity. Though an excellent companion to their Complete National Geographic software, this product is great stand alone as well.

National Geographic maps have long been invaluable resources to virtually everyone (Byrd carried one over the North Pole in '26, extensively utilized by the allies in WWII, etc.) and this software collects them all! While not as wholly geographically informative as a current National Geographic atlas, it is an excellent and cost effective substitute (it costs about half as much) which covers many things which the atlas does not.

Ideally, everyone would own this, the Complete National Geographic, and a current National Geographic atlas. But, in this less than ideal world, this is a great product which deserves to be on everyone's computer.

1-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
NGMaps 2.0 is disappointing software. Yes every National Geographic Map is included but generally what you get is a collection of high quality scans. If you want maps that are searchable - because you want to find something! then this isn't for you. The database is lacking both consistancy and raw data. As an Australian I was amazed that some of our capital cities could not even be found.

5-0 out of 5 stars Geography at its best: you don't even have to refold the map
Say the word 'map' and most people's eyes glaze over instantaneously. When over 50% of entering freshmen at American universities claimed in 1990 that Mexico was *north* of the United States, educators across the country got extremely worried. National Geographic started lending a hand to secondary educators in an effort to promote basic geographic understanding.

Of course, they'd already been doing something like that for years with their bi-monthly series of map inserts. National Geographic 'maps' have always been much more than a grid on the planet's surface. They've shown the impact of geography on societal development. Indeed, each map generally tied in with an article in that issue, and showed the impact of geography on whatever the theme of that article was. Maybe it would be the development of shipbuilding in Polynesia or the influence of the Church in Europe.

This package of excellent software goes the printed map series one better by virtue of its medium. You have complete control over the maps in a way not possible with their print counterparts. Plus, there are a ton of multimedia extras which make the maps come alive. The ability to go anywhere in the world and study not only its present, physical and political geography, but to also see its historical and cultural development, is wholly addictive. I challenge anyone to start using this product and NOT walk away from it enlightened.

For those shopping for the best geographical education software, it's worth mentioning that this product compares favorably to _Microsoft Encarta_. Unlike the more thematic offering here, _Encarta_ is a kind of multimedia almanac. It does not pretend to be an exhaustive collection of 100-odd years of cartographic understanding, but rather uses a map interface to frame encyclopediac information. It also allows you to 'corkboard' internet sites about the various geographic regions to the map interface. And it only has one disk, so you don't have to keep flipping back and forth. As such, it's a good, basic, workhorse software for learning about the present nature of the world.

_National Geographic Maps_, by contrast, makes the world come alive by providing better maps and helping you remember the geographic content by overlaying some kind of theme.

As such, _NGM_ is a better educational tool, and _Encarta_ is a more convenient simple reference tool. To be sure, the maps are better on _NGM_, but because of the number of CDs and _Encarta's_ better statistical analysis interface, _Encarta's_ more convenient for quick reference.

Still, almost anyone would benefit from introducing _NGM_ to their software library. It's quite simply some of the most valuable time you could spend at your computer. I have only one hesitation about this product: it would be soooo much better on DVD. Flipping through CDs is sometimes laborious, especially if you're trying to follow one theme throughout several different geographic regions. Having it all, or mostly, on one disc would be a massive improvement to the product. ... Read more

This is an absolute gem in literary and reference excellence. If you have any interest in things past, may it be history, geography, culture, society, whatever..., you name it, then this materpiece is for you. At 4 DVD or 31 CD's worth you are unlikely to get bored anytime within the next 10 years. And what great value for money !

4-0 out of 5 stars Well worth it...
I have seen other reviews which fault the complete National Geographic because it is presented as a set of page scans, rather than a text-based resource. This means that you can't do a full text search of the content, or copy and paste text to other documents. Still. I guess wordprocessing software was hard to come by in 1888.

My opinion? Great reference. Not too hard to read, considering the technology. The images are good. It prints ok. The search engine is good, and the navigation is quite usable. The program has only crashed on me once so far.

But get this DVD version. It saves swopping media all the time - and it takes much less space than 110 years worth of paper. (And do get the complete maps to go with it).

My only regret is this. I could not buy this item from Amazon.com, because they won't sell it outside of the USA for some reason. Instead I had to buy it from another Internet retailer (also based in the USA) with lesser customer service and lesser website usability. ... Read more

Once that's done, pop in the program disc and do aninstall. Afterwards, you'll need to reinsert the multimedia disc--which seems abit backward to us and led to some initial confusion, although everything isclearly laid out in the user's guide. You can use the street locator disc anytime after initial program installation, although you may need to reinsert themultimedia disc--another seemingly superfluous step.

The application allows users to plan a road trip in one of two ways: using thetrip wizard or manually. The trip wizard is the fastest and easiest method, asyou are asked to choose your origin and your destination from a long list ofpossible cities, and fill in stops along the way. However, you're not given alist of possible stops in between your origin and destination--you need tofigure that out on your own, either using the included map or an exteriorresource. You can also choose from a list of visits at your origin, destination,or a city in between. We planned a trip from Seattle to Vancouver, B.C., andwere given a huge list of restaurants, historic attractions, scenic parks, andmore in each city.

Other notable features in Trip Planner 2002 include the ability to budget yourtrips by estimating your fuel, food, and lodging expenses. However, thesenumbers are provided in a very general format, so if you are on a seriousbudget, you'll probably want to do some number crunching on your own. Anotherbenefit to this program are the travel tips and recommendations from NationalGeographic writers, which add value in the manner of a travel guidebook.Finally, PDA users will appreciate that they can download information directlyonto their Palms, rather than keeping track of printed itineraries and maps.

A few important notes--if you're looking to go anywhere besides the U.S. andCanada, Trip Planner 2002 is not for you. Also, if you simply want drivingdirections and maps, you can find this information for free on many travel Websites. However, if you want more in-depth details and recommendations for pointsof interest along the way, Trip Planner 2002 offers enough extras to make it aworthwhile purchase. --Gisele Toueg ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Two bad disks -- no support
I purchased 2 copies of this, one for myself and one for a gift. I can't get either one of them to load (get an installation error) and can get no support from the company I bought it from Nor from National Geographic. I would not recommend purchasing this product.

3-0 out of 5 stars National Geographic Trip Planner 2002 - Good but not Great
I will keep this simple. The clarity and ease of use of Microsoft's Streets and Trips 2002 has no rival.

National Geographic does bring to bear some of their excellent pics. and info. from the parks in their multimedia disk component of their package, but the list of parks was not nearly as complete as I had hoped, nor were more out of the way spots easy to set as waypoints - or even to locate.

I can do what needs to be done, without frustration, using the Microsoft product in less than a fourth of the time that it takes me to use the NG product.

The NG product is clearly better than anything Rand Mc. ever put out.

If you enjoy planning trips with software just for the sake of it, and want another program to complement the Microsoft offering, this is the one for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars It works and the price is right.
To know what this program does read the above amazon editorial review. As for me, I took a chance on this because I do enjoy planning trips and the price of this program is low risk. Of course, much of this information could be gotten off the internet, but it's great to have it all together with a funcion that allows you to make your own notes at places along your trip.

The budget maker is general, but is a quick way to get an accurate estimate on food, gas, lodging, and extras. I'm new to PC programs, but this was easy to learn and start using right away. You'll perhaps want to get more detailed info for hotel room discriptions off the net once you've got your trip planned, but then you can enter that info onto your memos in the program. I like very detailed hotel info with photos, so that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. But I might be asking too much of one program.

I know one thing for sure. It beats flipping through a lot of travel books while standing at the book store or clicking around the net for general information. And getting the trip directions, milage, driving time, and budget estimate with one click is worth it alone for me because I can quickly test out several trip choices. So I'm serious when I say I use it and it does get you into the feeling of "the James Bond lifestyle". ... Read more
