GeoEye Imagery Explorer and Terrain Profiler by ESRI

The GeoEye Imagery Explorer and Terrain Profiler prototype applications by ESRI incorporate GeoEye Imagery into functionality.

These two prototype satellite image catalogs are built on the ArcGIS API and displays high-res images of locales all over the globe, geotagged for on-the-map finger searches and fully manipulable via multi-touch. The Terrain Profile app does just what it sounds like: drag your finger between or around locations, and get topographical information on that specific route or area hosted by ArcGIS.
