I work with ArcGis Explorer and the coordinate system default is WGS 1984. Is it possible to change the coordinate system?

Yes. The Coordinates window in the Display ribbon lets you choose common grids like D.d, DMS, UTM, as well as all other projected grids found in Esri platforms. enter image description here

At second glance, it appears as though all these grids get an on-the-fly projection to fit the base system (probably a WGS84/Psuedo Mercator), so while basemap stays the same, the coordinates and the units change appropriately
