Google Earth is a virtual Earth software developed by Google Inc. that arranges satellite photos, aerial photography and GIS on a 3D model of the Earth. Google Earth was launched to the world in 2005 and was named one of the 100 best new products in the world in 2005 by PC World Magazine. Google Earth is divided into a free version and a professional version, which allows users to view high-resolution satellite images from around the world for free.
Google Earth uses 3D map positioning technology to bring the latest satellite images on Google Map to a new level. Users can search for specific areas on the 3D map, zoom in and out of the virtual images, and then form a driving guide. In addition, Google Earth has crafted a special option, Bird's Eye View of the Journey, to energize motorists. Google Earth does all of this primarily by accessing Keyhole's expanded database of aerospace and satellite images. The database was updated and it contains a large amount of terrain data from NASA, with more terrain to be covered in the future, involving fields, wastelands and more.
On iOS App Store, the rating is 4.1 out of 5.0, with 32,400 user reviews. On Google Play, its rating is 4.3 out of 5.0, with 2,900,000 user reviews and more than 100,000,000 installs.
The most recent version 9.175 was released on Oct 31, 2022. The new version fixed some issues and added Apple Pencil support for measurement tools.
