This could be because you have been to the Geoscience Australia website and viewed the online maps from there which require you to dowload some software to do it. (eg. the NATMAP maps) Could that be the case ?

ER viewer is an application which allows you to view GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping produced using ER Mapper, and perhaps other similar applications, ( it is a software tool for image processing and data manipulation used in GIS) , - so, if you've viewed any online maps, or downloaded any, you probably got it then.

Its actually just an image viewing program (whether the images are from/for GIS or not) - you cant do much with it, though it is handy for cropping images (and retaining georeferencing info) and for converting between a few image formats...I suspect most would just use it for looking at ecw files...but OziExplorer (and a range of other image viewing type programs now have ecw plugins for this purpose)

From the website...

ER Viewer is an easy to use image viewer featuring interactive roaming and zooming with very large image files. A wide range of image formats are supported:

From version 7.0,
ER Viewer supports JPEG 2000 files
ER Mapper ECW v2.0 compressed imagery
Universal Data Format (UDF) images
ER Mapper images
TIFF and GeoTIFF images
SPOT View images
ESRI BIL (ARC/INFO and ArcView) images
Smart Data ER Mapper algorithms

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874
