Google Earth is an application that allows you to see the world from the comfort of your seat. With its 3D mapping system, it is able to show you the geographical location and images of establishments, houses, streets, roads, and even bodies of water! Google Earth gives you the actual view of the destinations that you are looking for and not just a map with street names and home addresses.

A closer view 

The use of satellite images and aerial photography allows Google Earth to provide clear and true-to-life images of locations instead of the usual squares and blank spaces that you can see in other map applications. Starting from a bird’s eye view from space, you will be welcomed by a 3D model of the Earth that you can spin and tilt according to your preferred angle or until you are able to spot the area that you would like to visit. Just simply click, hold, and drag your mouse to rotate the 3D globe on your screens. To zoom in or out, all you have to do is to scroll upwards or downwards. 

If you are worried about getting distorted or unrecognizable images after zooming in for a closer look, rest assured that Google Earth amazingly has high-resolution images that are consistently clear even in street view. What’s even more amazing is that users can navigate around the area as if they are traveling there on foot. However, there are a few selected areas that are not available for street viewing such as restricted facilities and other remote locations. No need to worry, though, because they can still be pinpointed on the map. 

Discover new sights

Google Earth is more than just an advanced 3D map and you might be surprised to discover its other features that will let you explore the world in more ways other than simply scrolling and zooming. There are options available in its menu bar, which is located at the side of your screen. It houses the Voyager button where you can find informative topics and articles that discuss the historical significance of many places, as well as other important events that happened around the world. 

Games are also available to play on Google Earth. They are designed to let you explore the world in a more enjoyable way by taking you on an adventure. One of its most popular games is The Crown Jewels Caper where players will be taken on a hunt for Carmen Sandiego, a world-famous thief. The investigation leads you to visit different landmarks and popular tourist destinations as you gather clues and information on her whereabouts. With its easy game mechanics, cute pixel graphics, and unique gameplay, Finding Carmen Sandiego is a refreshing and entertaining way to explore maps in Google Earth.

The world at your fingertips

Google Earth makes it easier for people to locate and familiarize themselves with a place that they have never been to before. While it is not ideal to use as an on-the-spot navigation map like Waze and Google Maps, it is certainly useful in providing helpful insights about places and people. With its many other features available other than its 3D map, Google Earth can be used as educational material.

It’s a globe that sits inside your PC. You point and zoom to anyplace on the planet that you want to explore. Satellite images and local facts zoom into view.

Tap into Google search to show local points of interest and facts. Zoom to a specific address to check out an apartment or hotel. View driving directions and even fly along your route.
