Google Earth English version. This Education & Reference Geography is free software for Windows Android Mac iPhone developed by Google.

Google Earth is a geography and educational tool that lets you view Earth from all angles for free thanks to a combination of satellite photos, aerial images, and Street View. Its powerful search engine, a large amount of information and images available, and its intuitive use make it the best way to discover the planet we live on, but also the sky, the Moon, and even Mars. Google Earth is also available for Android, Mac, and iOS.

Explore the world with Google Earth

Google Earth is a kind of 3D interactive atlas. You’ll be able to see what (almost) every corner of the world looks like. From the largest cities to national parks, and even underwater, all of the world’s wonders are just a click away.

If Earth isn't enough for you, you can enjoy pictures of the Moon and Mars, and navigate between stars. The Google Earth search engine will help you find the location you're looking for using anything from an address, to a GPS coordinate.

Google Earth offers many layers that include information about places, such as borders, roads, 3D buildings, trees, pictures, and weather. You’ll also be able to add content to Google Earth, like pictures of places you've visited. Google Earth integrates the Street View feature, available on Google Maps, to let you roam free around some cities.

In addition to all these features, Google Earth will also give you the opportunity to create routes, measure distances, add bookmarks, save images, and even fly a plane with a flight simulator.

Travel with your mouse

Navigation in Google Earth is very intuitive, and all you need is the mouse or the buttons on the screen. You can zoom, rotate the view, and travel with ease around Earth. As for enjoying a virtual walk with Street View, you can start by dragging the icon of the little man onto an available street (displayed in blue). The navigation is excellent too; it's as easy as scrolling with the mouse. The search engine and all other options can be found on a menu to the left, which you can make smaller to enjoy the view.

An essential program

Google Earth is a fantastic and amazing tool to observe the Earth and our environment. The graphics engine is impressive, just like the large number of places you can visit in detail. The textures and the proposed content on the different layers are updated regularly. Google Earth is an essential program that will take you halfway around the world without leaving your couch.  Although this program is quite unbeatable, if you are looking for another free alternative, NASA World Wind may be something to consider downloading.
