- Geody is a new location search engine. Enter a name, or coordinates, for a location and it gives you all kinds of methods for viewing. For example: New York, NY can be viewed with Google Earth, NASA WorldWind, Celestia, Google Maps, and Mapquest. You can export a location to a GPX file, Geocaching.com, etc. Also, you can get hotel and other travel information and links to Google and other search engines. What’s more, you can search for locations on the Moon, Mars, and other space locations. Very cool!
