I've been using satellite exploration (from my desktop) for several years now. I started scanning along the Silk Road and in Urumqi a few years ago, and Livorno, Italy about five years ago. You can travel around the world and see the sights from 380 miles above or ground level if you like.
When I discovered GlobalXplorer I joined and participated in searching for looting holes. That gave me the idea to use looting holes in my novel, The Hole in the Bone.
GlobalXplorer is an amazing way to explore the latest discoveries in archaeology and aid in the protection of antiquities. India is next.
