editor's review





Microsoft VirtualEarth Satellite Downloader is a software application that facilitates quick downloads of satellite images from Microsoft Virtual Earth, based on user-defined coordinates. It is very simple to work with.

The program installs quickly and without any issues. It has a traditional interface made from a regular window, where you can get started by specifying the project name and directory (MVSD format).

So, all you have to do is establish the left and right longitude, top and bottom latitude, along with the zoom level, threads count and output folder, in order to proceed with the downloading job.

During this time you can view log details on the bottom part of the screen. In addition to this, it is possible to convert degrees, minutes and seconds to degrees, view satellite images in a separate panel (with or without full screen mode), download a single image, as well as combine multiple satellite pictures to BMP format.

As far as program settings are concerned, you can set a default saving path, zoom level and threads count, enable sleep mode after a user-defined time interval (in seconds), as well as alter Internet connection settings by using proxies.

Microsoft VirtualEarth Satellite Downloader has a good response time, carries out a downloading job swiftly and uses a low quantity of CPU and RAM in the process. It did not cause Windows to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs in our tests. Thanks to its overall simplicity, even first-time users can quickly figure out Microsoft VirtualEarth Satellite Downloader.
