About Google Earth

Google Earth is a tool for viewing the planet on your computer. Using Google Earth you can view satellite imagery covering the entire globe.

From http://www.google.com/earth/:

Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips.

  • Fly to your house. Just type in an address, press Search, and you’ll zoom right in.
  • Search for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Get driving directions.
  • Tilt and rotate the view to see 3D terrain and buildings, or look up to explore the sky
  • Save and share your searches and favorites.

Google Earth also provides a powerful way to view geographic data. More and more we are releasing project information and data using Google Earth. The information that is released for Google Earth provides a complement to the information on our website.
