One of the most amazing tools Google has developed is Google Earth, as it allows users to learn things about the world without ever needing to leave the comfort of their own home. It allows users to check out the amazing historical sites Earth has to offer without having to go physically there to see it.



When using regular Google Earth, a person can get a visualization of the tracks they’ve taken with the GPS and provide that information to other folks. People can check the planet out that they never could do in real-time or in their lifetime.  Google Earth allows them to zoom into and out of various places – go from satellite view to street view.  Business folks can check out different locations because they do a visual inspection.
Google Earth Pro can be used for free now. People can use regular Google earth in all kinds of ways – street view, bird’s eye view and satellite view, but the Pro version was created for commercial reasons.

There are all kinds of reasons to use Google Earth Pro including but not limited to:

  • People can use Movie Maker to create various types of media.
  • Print screenshots and images in hi-resolution to use in presentation materials.
  • People can quickly and conveniently map GIS information, allowing you to import vector image files.

Before the downloading and installation of Google Earth Pro, PC users need to have Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. For Mac users, the operating system needs to be Mac OS X 10.6.0 or later.

The latest version of Google Earth Pro is 7.1 but 7.0 can still be used.

Users will be asked if they want the software to update automatically when improvements or fixes are available. Google will also ask if you to report usage information anonymously to better the software.

In order to freely use Google Earth Pro, users will need to use their email address and the key GEPFREE to use it.
