Sharing is caring!

Many older people remember when Earth was attached to a stand, and spinning it allowed them to see the different places of world. When you were a child, how many times did you spin the ball (globe) using your index finger to see where it would land when the ball quit turning?

This globe was the primary way to see and understand how the planet looked. Today, the globe isn’t the go-to thing to see the world. Instead, it’s Google Earth – an extremely unique tool that allows them to check the world out in the comfort of their home. It’s considered both efficient and effective.

In fact, Google Earth is useful by not only individuals but the education system and large companies to track, locate and watch different areas using real-time data.
