Now, Google Earth is no longer reserved for Windows PC users. Google has also developed Google Earth Mac
, a version which, as its name suggests, is designed for Mac computers. Mac users can also virtually explore the surface of the earth in 3D.
Google Earth is probably one of the great technological innovations of the twenty-first century. It's mainly intended for geo-location. With Google Earth Mac
, it is possible to reach a point on the earth by simply entering its geographic coordinates. Google Earth Mac
is able to locate all the cities of the world, from the largest to smallest.
What is interesting about this software is that it gives users the ability to go back in time thanks to archived images it keeps in its database each year. Thus, users can view the status of a city or country to set and compare it to its current period.
Display 3D buildings
As mentioned above, Google Earth Mac
shows cities and neighborhoods with precision. Indeed, it can display a variety of 3D buildings in the world using Google SketchUp. It is a program for creating 3D city buildings.
Google Earth Mac
does not show pictures that lack of precision. Its images are from NASA and uses 360° panoramas.
Google Earth Mac is also available on Windows
