A great way to view satellite imagery, terrain, buildings and other visual data from around the globe
If you've ever wanted to travel the world and can't afford to board a plane every week, you can still experience the views and images of your favorite places with Google Earth Pro. With satellite images, high aerial photos and shots taken with cameras at the street level, Google Earth is like walking down the street of your favorite city in France or Greece or Germany without leaving your chair at home.
With the help of satellites that have taken pictures of the Earth from up high, you can explore many locations by typing in an address or a GPS coordinate. You can find a single house and investigate the position of the house in relation to others in the neighborhood. If you want to see national parks up close, you can find them on Google Earth Pro. It'll even include information about the location.
This view is as if you're flying in a plane over the location. More details show than with satellite view, and it lets you create maps, plan routes and measure the distance between locations. It's a great way to check on a neighborhood before you leave home. If you're unsure about an address, you can map it with Google Earth first.
The street view will give so much information. It is not real-time information, but you can zoom in and rotate your view to really study a location. This is convenient for so many reasons. If you are considering a move, you can narrow down your search using street view. You might find things that the realtor missed. There's a small icon of a man that can be dragged onto any location that allows street view. You can rotate your view 360 degrees too.
Google Earth has started to experiment with 3D buildings on its interface. When you're in Google Earth, you will see an icon that lets you know that there is a 3D version of the building available. It allows you to tour the interior and exterior of buildings more closely. There are so many amazing possibilities for this feature.
