Are there still places that have been unexplored? Still to explore?

I know that we have used Google Maps and other satellite maps to help locate "new" places of interest, geographically; but, are there still places that remain unexplored (I am sure there are, and we don't know)?

What places should be further explored and what could the exploration lead to?

I know that one of the best explorations, (I think by National Geographic and NSF), was the study of the Vietnam cave, one of the largest cave systems in the world.

    Nov 14 2013: I was thinking about this the other day! I asked myself who wrote the atlas's? How do we know there is a piece of land they didn't 'draw' for the atlas? Only way we'd be able to find out is by shipping ourselves out there but there is 'forbidden' land!! Coincidence much??????
