Current Engine Version 5.09 (Last Pub. June 28, 2012) Thanks to:( www.topofusion.com ) For the following happy information: "After announcing that MSRMaps.com (formerly Terraserver) will be closing permanently, Microsoft has decided to keep the service alive. They received enough requests from longtime users and folks that rely heavily on the service. If you sent a note in, thank you!" EverlyMap automatically connects and downloads the 1 meter per pixel USGS tiled orthoimagery provided by the MSRMaps.com servers to a point clicked on your map. The "USGS Photomap" typically is then traced to form your map image. This image can then be exported as a shapefile or used in various other ways.
As began with Version 5.06 EverlyMap is Free to use INDEFINITELY without Registration!
EverlyMap will continue to publish the current state of development as bugs are fixed and improvements made. It is always recommended to download the current engine. It is NOT necessary to uninstall Everlymap prior to downloading and installing newer versions. Uninstall deletes any maps you have created in the EverlyMaps folder.

Just out of curiosity I mapped the planned sailing route of the Titanic, position of impact, and the wreck location by applying easily found data from the internet.
