Now that your first city hall is under construction, let's move your explorer to some undiscovered land. At the bottom of the screen, you can see the {{item|move}} action is available for this unit. Press {{key|v}}, or click it with your mouse, and then move your text cursor ▒ to where you would like the explorer to move to (either click & drag, or use {{key|a}}, {{key|s}}, {{key|d}}, or {{key|w}}). Again, check the bottom of your screen in the game for these directions when you're in {{item|move}} or any other mode.

Another convenient mode is to use the {{item|Move with cursor}} action -- you can see the keyboard shortcut/button to activate this mode also at the bottom of your screen once you've selected a unit. This will have the unit instantly follow the text cursor ▒ (again, you can either move the text cursor by the keys {{key|a}}, {{key|s}}, ... or by clicking & dragging with your mouse). While many actions are easier with the mouse, I believe it's a little easier to move the text cursor with the keyboard when using this movement mode.

While you can manually explore the map with your explorer, or any of your units, another option is to set your explorer to automatically explore. As is shown at the bottom of your screen when you've selected a unit, you can press {{key|l}} to automate exploration. Automated exploration is not as fast as manual exploration, so if there's an area of the map some of your explorers find of interest to you, you can switch over to the {{item|move with cursor}} mode to quickly explore that area, then automate them again when you're finished.
