Google Earth is a virtual Earth globe with which you’ll be able to see our planet’s geography in extreme detail.
Roam the world without leaving your home
Although various functions have been added to this program, its main attraction is still the possibility to see a satellite map of any part of the world, with just a few clicks.
Google Earth lets you browse the entire globe freely, either using the mouse cursor, arrows, the navigation box on the left side or typing any address in the corresponding field. It also lets you zoom in and out as much as you want, to see the satellite photographs of every region in greater detail.
But Google Earth does much more than just show you a photograph or a map. You can get information about any place and see various data layers directly on the map. For example, you can enable political divisions, the street layout, places of interest, health centers, businesses, restaurants, etc. You’ll find interesting data or historical events about specific places, and you’ll learn much more about the world around you.
Roam the world in 3D and explore beyond Earth
Google Earth presents you with a much more enveloping experience than any other map. With functions such as “Street View” and “Street Walk”, in some areas and cities you can walk through the streets as if you were there. You’ll be able to see extremely detailed photographic reconstructions of all these areas, while walking between buildings, cars and pedestrians.
But Google Earth is not limited to just showing you cities views. Over 70% of our planet consists of water, so it wouldn’t be correct to forget about our oceans. This program recreates various ocean maps in 3D, to let you see the fascinating undersea geography, with mountains, cracks, abysses and even ocean currents.
Finally, Google Earth will let you roam the skies, with maps of stars, constellations and astronomical objects. You’ll even be able to explore the Moon’s geography as detailed as Earth.
Never get lost again
Apart from being a very entertaining application, Google Earth can be very useful. For a start, you can select any address in the world to see the corresponding map. Choosing the appropriate options, you’ll be able to see the streets and the places of interest. Up to this point it works like any other map, but this application goes one step further.
If you choose two places, Google Earth will precisely tell you the distance between both. Also, if you want, it will tell you how to get from one place to another walking, in a car or with other types of transportation.
You’ll be able to add markers to important places, with data, photographs and even videos. The best part is that you’ll see other people’s markers, find out important information and marvel at photographs of users from all over the world.
Much more than a map
In summary, Google Earth is a very complex geographical application, with a large number of features and extras. You’ll be able to roam the world, learn about cities, explore the sky and the oceans, find routes, see information, save favorite places and much more.
With Google Earth you’ll spend hours learning about the world in the most entertaining way. Besides, every time you need it, you’ll be able to use this program to know where to go. Download Google Earth for free!
