Google Earth enables you to virtually explore the entire globe by navigating satellite imagery at different zooming levels. The app allows you to explore the terrain and find different locations, view the user provided media content and much more.

The Google Earth app is very easy to install: even if you do not move it to your Applications folder, the app will offer to move itself when you run it for the first time.

Google Earth provides a wide array of geographical information: you can view maps, the actual terrain, 3D buildings, the countries borders, the locations name and the attached photos.

Furthermore, Google Earth enables you to explore the ocean’s depths, visit Mars or explore the surface of the Moon.

Google Earth offers you the possibility to search for specific places or businesses all over the world and also allows you to mark certain locations. For each position you can obtain the geographical coordinates, which will prove very useful if you want to geotag your images.

At the same time, Google Earth can be used to get directions on how to get from one place to another. In this case, using the Street View function helps you orientate better.

Google Earth includes a Flight Simulator function and you can choose one of the two available aircrafts: F-16 or SR22. Note that you need a joystick to access this feature (if the joystick is not detected, the option is simply unavailable).

Bottom line, Google Earth delivers extensive geographical information and details about most locations around the world, while making the entire exploration process an extraordinary experience.

What's New in version
  • The “Enable Controller” option in user preferences is now turned off by default. This prevents red directional arrows from displaying as a result of uncalibrated joysticks and other controllers being connected to Earth at startup.
  • For enhanced security, “Use HTTPS for Google connections” is now toggled on by default.
  • We fixed a bug whereby the cache size rose above user-specified limits.
  • We fixed a crash resulting from searching on some Windows machines.
