What do you like best?

Google earth pro, only has advantages, it is a very complete application, it has a pretty good support, and an unparalleled technical service, you can see that they are continuously working on it, because the maps are updated every so often, we can also highlight the tools that has as the ability to visualize the climate of a specific area, or to share information with other users of the program, also has the option of saving files on the device to access them without access to the Internet, so that we can say that it is an application that stands out among others

" I love it and it is very useful"

What do you like best?

It is a very useful application for the geolocation of a specific place, the visualization of a route that we need to create, or follow, we can fix ourselves in the places of interest of a country, or city without having to move from the office, we can also visualize images of a specific area, such as a street, it should be noted that it has images of all the locations of the globe, and some of them with figures in three dimensions, buildings or monuments, which makes it a pleasant experience to use this software

What do you dislike?

As negative points, it should be noted that there are outdated maps, and that therefore it is difficult to find some addresses that are not, in remote villages or little frequented by visitors

"Amazing"

What do you like best?

It is the best application at the practical level of google, it is an application that allows you to view any part of the world from the office, above all it is useful to create a route to follow in a future trip, which allows us to save time and money at the time to organize personal or work trips, it is also worth noting that it has very useful tools such as marking areas of interest in the route, we can also see the time of the area, we can visualize figures in three dimensions, and see critiques and images of other users who have been in the same place

What do you dislike?

I would like to highlight the desactualizacion of some other map, also some other comment that has nothing to do with the area seen, but at the most is very good

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a totally free world map, easy to use and available to anyone with Internet

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems solved have been to create routes in the traditional way, so that benefits us when saving time

"That´s gre"

What do you like best?

It is an impressive application, without a doubt it is the best world atlas I have seen, the most requested maps updated, it is very up-to-date, to others, it should be noted that it has many tools such as thumbtacks, which allows us to save a precise location , I would also like to highlight other functions, such as seeing the weather at that moment, we can also see images of other users, which helps a lot when it comes to getting an idea of ​​the site we are observing, we can also highlight between the tools the figures in three dimensions, without a doubt impressive, a very good resolution, for the amount of information that they process to the day

What do you dislike?

It can be said that the maps least consulted, are not updated normally, but I see some maps with more than ten years old, which does not allow to get a real idea of ​​the chosen area

Recommendations to others considering the product

A free atlas with impressive quality

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"I love it"

What do you like best?

I love this application, because it allows me to see other cities that I probably do not have the possibility to visit in the future, but at the same time it allows me to create routes which are necessary for the clients, so that the commercials would not lose any time at the time. to visit them, to sell our products, it should be noted that I love the figures in three dimensions, which gives a charm to the maps, and the possibility of viewing images of the desired area taken by other users

What do you dislike?

I dislike maybe some areas are outdated, since there are maps that have not been updated for more than ten years, although I can not see it, I can get an idea of ​​how it is today

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very useful application for anyone who requires a map

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Muy buena"

What do you like best?

Puedo decir sin temor a equivocarme que lo que mas me gusta de esta aplicacion, son sus mapas en tres dimensiones, pero tiene mil y una funciones mas, como pueda ser la de trazar una ruta, marcar una zona concreta, etiquetar algo o una direccion, superponer algun otro mapa u imagen a la que tenemos actualmente, tambien cabe destacar que tiene un gran soporte tecnico, para ser una aplicacion gratuita

What do you dislike?

Lo que me disgusta de esta aplicacion es que hay zonas en las que no disponemos de las imagenes en tres dimensiones, o que el mapa esta obsoleto como puedan ser en algunos pueblos, alejados de la ciudad

Recommendations to others considering the product

Se puede recomendar sin problemas este programa, es sencillo y facil de usar, tiene dinamismo, y tambien nos permite ver zonas que sean inaccesibles a pie

"With Google Earth you can search places with just a click and it will take you there."

What do you like best?

You can open your working files (shp, tab, kmz, geotiff etc) to cross check you coordinated readings of your work. And it's easier importing your gps *gpx files data over the platform and see your tracks.

What do you dislike?

The mosaic landsat satellite images are outdated, have a bad image resolution. Significant masses of cloud cover also.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google is always available and easy to use, navigate around, anyone can use it and there's no complexity in the software features. Software is open source and accessible on the internet where you can download and install for free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It was used as background images in less accurate projects and those that doesn't emphasize on quality mapping. It is also used in recording project tour of our work. And also viewing 3D terrain of a particular areas of interest.

"Google Earth Pro Useful for Roadway Engineering"

What do you like best?

I personally like the ease of use of Google Earth Pro and the fact that it can be easily downloaded for anyone to use (consultants, contractors, and clients alike).

What do you dislike?

If there is anything I dislike about Google Earth Pro is the fact that sometimes it gets 'glitchy' and zooms me into a pitch black screen sometimes when exiting street view. However, every software is bound to have some sort of glitch, and this is a small inconvenience compared to large benefits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My understanding is that anyone can download Google Earth Pro for free (note, I am not the one who purchases software for my company so I do not know for sure), so that being considered I would think there is no reason NOT to have it on your computer if you work on any type of highway or other civil projects. If you are a user of Civil3d, know that you can access Bing imagery from Civil3D itself which is useful, but I honestly prefer the imagery from Google Earth Pro and believe that you can get higher resolution with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Earth Pro provides great imagery to use in high level exhibits or proposals and above all else is extremely beneficial to me as a roadway designer because it allows me to virtually visit (via street view) nearly any project I am working on without always having to physically be there (of course, taking into account how recent the imagery is). It is also useful for estimating areas which comes in handy quite often. Lastly, I have exported files from Civil3D to be imported into this software for clients and other coworkers to see project linework, stationing, and limits.

"Take a look at the extraordinary geospatial images with google earth pro"

What do you like best?

The most novel thing is that it has help to geolocate information automatically. In addition, it allows you to import images of all types of resolutions to accommodate your own images, even exceeding their resolution. Something that was impossible in Google Earth. It also presents options to create all kinds of maps and add user's own layers to accommodate the images to the information that is to be presented.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it gets very slow and it gets stuck.

 in some cases the streets and roads are not the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that you use Google Earth Pro, which is a tool for designing and editing maps and photographs. It is an excellent professional application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Earth Pro helps to improve the relationship with customers, thanks to the use of an image with great detail to insert your design of a building at a specific point, enabling the realization of plans and images for reports. Something that can also be carried out outside urban areas, designing all kinds of routes, buildings, plans or any idea about the high resolution images of Google Earth Pro.

"New photo layer and the loss of the Panoramio Layer"

What do you like best?

What used to be one of the most useful aspects of Google Earth was the Panoramio Photo Layer. This imagery, provided freely by thousands of contibuters from all over the world, became a vital tool for science, environmental research and monitoring, anthropology, expedition planning and holidy planning, to mention just a few. The Panoramio Photo Layer was a fantastic archive of imagery, constisting of millions of photographs showing all aspects of life and topography from every corner of the world, many geotagged and and many accurately placed by the photographer. A few were misplaced but were so close that it didn't really cause many problems.

What do you dislike?

The wilful removal of the Panoramio Photo Layer is akin to book burning or the distruction of historic sites by terrorists in the Middle East. It a sad and ill judged act of vandalism.

The new photo layer is an extremely poor replacement for an amoazing archive. It is now purely an advertising medium, aimed at people visiting cities and tourist attractions. The icons are too big and the zoom feature of showing the icons means that the overal earth image is lost while trying t find the icons.

All images being pinned to pre-defined POIs is plainly ridiculous and impractical.

The loss of the Panoramio Photo Layer has rendered Google Earth almost useless, apart from viewing satellite imagery and that can be done with many other mapping tools, such as Bing Maps.

A total disaster for Google Earth, I am currently a user of Google Earth but only in the hope that the Panoramio Layer will be reistated. If it isn't, then I will not be using Google Earth any longer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Without reinstating the Panoramio Photo Layer, I can no longer recommend Google Earth.

"Google Earth Pro - Great for Real Estate"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of navigation with the mouse within Google Earth Pro. "Driving" is intuitive, and the user interface makes it easy enough for anyone to understand how to use it.

What do you dislike?

Some of the toggles (prevent auto tilt, turning off certain views, etc) are somewhat hidden, so if there was an easier menu to turn things off that are somewhat nuanced, that would help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google has the most imagery of any other software, so to use another software would be handicapping your business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very easy to zoom to other markets and evaluate them from a remote location, and I also use Google Earth Pro on my iPad when I am with clients. I am able to solve questions as they arise regarding what business surround an intersection, and how visibility to a building may be from a road (via the Street View). Benefits are great due to being able to identify property from a birds-eye view, and then zoom into the street level to show a client what type of property they are looking at.

"Google Earth Pro for Architects"

What do you like best?

Google Earth Pro is very helpful for architects because it allows you to view buildings, sites, etc. in 3D and scale and measure them.

What do you dislike?

Some of the layering is a bit primitive and can use some upgrading. Although not designed to it's full potential, what they currently have is functional.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They could improve their layering system to have a few more categories that would help to customize the users needs even more

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Earth Pro has been a useful tool to allow me to view a building or site in it's context and from an aerial and bird's eye perspective. You can use it to show as little or as much context as you want.

"La mejor manera de ubicar las zonas de interés"

What do you like best?

Me gustan muchos aspectos del Google Earth Pro como la visualización de las líneas de división, topografía y edificaciones, tambien es muy bueno para ubicar los sitios que nos interesan como áreas de riesgo por inundaciones, zonas de vulnerabilidad por deslizamientos, zonas de riesgo por almacenamiento de combustible y localización de hospitales, estos aspectos son importantes para visualizar en una superficie como una alcaldía o estado. Adicionalmente, se debe considerar las distancias entre rios y servicios para telecomunicaciones, sistemas contra incendios y costas y las distancias que estas tienen entre sí.

What do you dislike?

Una de las cosas que no me gustan es que se puede cargar fotos y la visualización de la superficie de la tierra con un ángulo diferente al ortogonal. en cuanto a las fotos, a veces tiene una diferencia entre la foto y la ubicación y el que cargue las fotos de una zona específica, por ejemplo morrocoy no permite que la computadora desarrolle bien el programa. En segundo punto, la superficie se distorsiona al cambiar el ángulo desde 90 grados a otro angulo diferente, pudiendo ver el terreno de forma oblicua.

Recommendations to others considering the product

El uso de Google Earth Pro es una herramienta poderosa debido a que puede ayudarnos a nosotros como ingenieros civiles a visualizar una superficie y estimar lo que puede ser construido en ella, determinar la distancia en que puede estar a salvo de una inundación y cercano a un servicio de salud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Se resolvieron dos problemas, siendo el primer problema se midió los cambios en el retroceso de la línea de costa debida a la construcción de espigones, midiendo la línea de costa en el 2009 comparandola a los años anteriores que existen como base de datos en el Hatillo, Estado Anzoátegui,

"Excelente Herramienta Online para la Geolocalización"

What do you like best?

Me encanta Google Earth Pro, siempre lo utilizo para ubicar lugares, crear Kml y ver las imágenes de satélite Landsat y Quickbird que están bajo su plataforma de visualización. Es una herramienta muy útil no sólo para los amantes de la cartografía y la geolocalización, sino también para todas aquellas personas curiosas de conocer ubicaciones y direcciones de los lugares en el planeta tierra.

What do you dislike?

Esta plataforma online me gusta mucho. Creo que lo única observación que tengo es que me gustaría poder agregar mas cantidad de atributos a los kml generados dentro de Google Earth Pro

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo Google Earth Pro a todas la personas que deseen ubicar cualquier elemento en el planeta tierra, es una plataforma sencilla de usar y posee maravillosa ventajas para vincularse con los software SIG

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El google Earth Pro permite crear capas kml y kmz georeferenciadas de geometría de polígonos, polilíneas y puntos, además de vincularlas con software SIG. Esas características del programa me han ayudado mucho a resolver problemas como verificar capas shape proveniente de software SIG para saber si están bien geo localizada y ver usos de la tierra entre otras ventajas

"A very useful software"

What do you like best?

No doubt google earth pro, allows us to have access to a huge amount of information, especially of satellite routes and images, it also allows us to visit places of interest, being able to see figures in three dimensions, it also allows us to create our own travel routes, and even see the time it makes in the area in real time, also allows us to share information with other users of the application, as a strong point we can save images on the device, so that if we did not have access to the internet we could have access to images already saved previously

What do you dislike?

Without a doubt, I can say that it has almost no points that I dislike, but there are obsolete maps which is somewhat annoying in some situations

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a free software that allows us to access maps of the entire globe instantaneously with most of the updated maps

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our organization we have been able to solve the problem of the creation of routes for clients and with this it benefits both the organization and the clients when it comes to working

"Great for Classroom VIrtual Trips"

What do you like best?

I love that when I "fly" my classroom to a different place in the world, they can see how much of the globe we are traveling.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be a bit slow to work through pixelation into a clear view when we "land" in a new place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test it out, especially the destination you want to see, before presenting it to a group. Especially if you would like to zoom in on something specific, it is good to know how close you can get before you begin to lose some definition in the picture. (Plant life can begin to look like claymation if you get too close, but that is just part of life when dealing with this type of software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Field trips are becoming increasingly costly, even when they are local. I also sometimes face issues with parents not wanting their children to travel on a school bus. Using Google Earth gives my students the sense that we are traveling, that we can "go" to exotic places, and that there are places and things outside their small world that they should be curious about.

"Of the best"

What do you like best?

At all times google earth pro, has helped our company when it comes to organizing trips and routes, but above all it helps us when visiting a zone previously, without having to send a person specifically to see the area to verify that the travel is the right one and the one that best suits our destiny, so google earth pro, helps our company enormously saving time and money, and I love its figures in three dimensions, it seems that we are in that same place, it also allows us see the weather that makes in each site without having to open an external page to see it

What do you dislike?

It has a negative point that the resolution of the figures in three dimensions is not in high definition, otherwise it is a great application

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a highly recommended application since it is free and it is very easy to use, so it can help you a lot

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a general rule it has helped us enormously when creating routes, because we do not have to resort to a travel agency, which benefits us economically

"Google Earth Pro - Great for seeing terrain without a site visit"

What do you like best?

The smoothness and ease of use of the product allows for easy visualization of terrain/obstacles/challenges that might be faced on sites. The ability to lay 2d images based on GPS coordinates is an amazing feature that greatly helps visualizing where construction can take place.

What do you dislike?

It's easy to get sidetracked from task at hand as there is such a wealth of information, it become very easy to just look up side curiosities instead of concentrating on what you need to do at the moment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for visualizing terrain without the need of physically visiting the area.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Earth Pro allows for understanding terrain that might not be noticeable on drawings without having to plan a costly trip for a large group. It also allows for better visualizations of where construction can happen as you are able to place drawings onto the terrain in the program. Only 1 person needs to go to a site visit and they are then able to use Google Earth Pro to visually demonstrate/confirm the data that is shown allowing for a clearer understanding for those that are in the home office.

"So much you can do"

What do you like best?

I really like that you can gain perspective of where you live or work or places you might go. I also like using the measure function and find out how big a building is or what distance you may have traveled. I also like "exploring" new places or looking up locations that I read about to gain more global awareness.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, it takes a while to load the image to optimal clarity when zooming in. Also, after you zoom in to a certain distance, the images start getting blurry. I know that is because of the ability of the cameras, but I'd still like to see more detail. I can take a little while to get used to navigating around on the maps. The globe tends to rotate also as you are trying to fly from one location to another.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will want to make sure you have a good internet connection. I would highly recommend exploring and playing around with it. There is an online only based google earth, but it does not have as many options or tools as google earth pro.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my classroom, I have been able to use Google Earth to show my students details about trips. I have also been able to show historical and geographical significance as background for music we are performing. I have also used it to look up addresses so I know exactly where I am going and how it will look when I get there.

"This tool has literally changed the way the real estate industry works"

What do you like best?

The aerial and street view imagery. This has become such an integral part of our everyday lives that perhaps we fail to take the time to actually acknowledge what an incredible tool this actually is?

Additionally, the feature in the Pro version where you can see the measurements and internal area of polygons is a superb tool when trying to estimate the extent or built size of land or buildings.

What do you dislike?

Moving markers out of folders one at a time can be very time-consuming. You should be able to select and move multiple items at once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I don't know of any other free alternatives to this product with nearly as many features and ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool allows us to view assets all over our market without having to physically visit them - as an initial point of review, this saves enormous amounts of time.

"I like it"

What do you like best?

I like above all the ease with which we can draw a route, or have access to a specific place on a map, we can also send comments to other users, we can also have access to a map at street level, so we see all the establishments that exist with google street view, we can also see the layers of the land, see areas on old maps or we can also have recent pictures of places of interest, we can even create a route to travel

What do you dislike?

It can be said that what I dislike about this software is that it has some obsolete maps of more than 10 years ago, as it could be in my region of Spain a place already developed

Recommendations to others considering the product

A recommended application for anyone who needs to travel or see a route

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Normally in our company when going to visit clients from time to time, we need a map and google earth pro, it helps us to see which route is the most appropriate to avoid wasting time, it benefits us enormously when it comes to not having to go more than once visit

"The best gallery of satellite images at your fingertips."

What do you like best?

This program has the best and most up-to-date satellite image gallery, with which you can work, study, plan and even enjoy beautiful scenes even in 3D.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about this program is that almost all the images (those of high resolution), are located in areas of cities and should be the entire world map.

It is a very simple and easy to use program, it allows you to locate places, select areas, establish meeting points, routes, make routes, among many other things; and you can download it and install it anywhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Earth is a very practical tool with very updated satellite images and has helped me a lot to locate places and extract coordinates, as well as add vector information and be able to save them as personalized maps.

"Simple y facil"

What do you like best?

Me encanta que tenga diversas etiquetas y su mayoria de contenido en 3D, tambien que se tenga acceso al clima, o la galeria de fotos de un lugar especifico, nos muestra fronteras y lugares de interes en un mapa, y oceanos, tiene objetos en 3D muy logrados, y con bastantes posibilidades en un futuro

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me agrada del todo, es que las figuras en 3D no estan del todo nitidas, osea, si las ampliamos no disponemos de una nitidez clara, como podria ser llendo para el sitio o en fotografias

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo esta aplicacion porque es la mas completa, a parte te permite etiquetar tus propios sitios de interes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En nuestra empresa es una aplicacion basica porque necesitamos movernos por todo el territorio nacional para visitar a nuestros clientes y nos ayuda a encontrar sus domicilios o negocios, nos beneficiamos continuamente de estos puntos fuertes que tiene la aplicacion

"Un mapa a tener en cuenta"

What do you like best?

En nuestra empresa, solemos esconder paquetes regalos con coordenadas gps, las de google earth, son las mas precisas y por ello, para dar vida a nuestros clientes y a nuestros trabajadores, podemos usar esta maravillosa aplicacion para jugar con ellos, muy completa con sus edificios en 3D, y muy actualizada

What do you dislike?

No me gusta que todo el mapa en si no esta actualizado, pero por lo demas, se puede decir que es una aplicacion de diez, pero podrian mejorar la visualizacion de los edificios en 3D con un poquito mas de precision en vez de una imagen borrosa

Recommendations to others considering the product

Una aplicacion muy a tener en cuenta si necesitas trabajar online mostrando lugares geograficos, o para encontrar algun edificio importante, facil de utilizar y muy economica, al alcance de todos los bolsillos, es la mejor aplicacion con muestras de edificio en 3D que hay en el mercado

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Como dije anteriormente, realizamos gymcanas y podemos organizarlas escondiendo objetos o pistas con unas coordenadas gps, y esta aplicacion tiene las mas precisas del mercado, nos ayuda en parte a crear rutas de reparto para nuestros trabajadores, y rutas para encontrar a los repartidores para nuestros clientes

"Great product, much more intensive than maps, and provides a nice UI for easy use."

What do you like best?

I found it very useful to get elevations charted out, while saving routes in the program for reference later. Very good for preliminary calculations for pipeline applications.

What do you dislike?

It can get a bit hard to control the movement of the earth when you zoom out. Otherwise its a pretty powerful product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to get familiar with all features prior to using this for work. There is a lot of tools that can be used that aren't typically provided in Google Maps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Elevations and charted distances allow me to determine pipeline mapping as part of my engineering work. Saving these instead of having to use google maps allows me to return to my work. It's useful and powerful to have something free and available for use.

"Incredible geospatial software for a great price - FREE!"

What do you like best?

Google Earth Pro has high quality aerial imagery available for free, has an easy to use navigation interface, gives access to historical imagery, and allows you to make accurate and easy surface measurements

What do you dislike?

Some features can be a bit wonky (like image overlay), software appears to be seldom updated or improved

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the only tool of its kind and Google Earth Pro is now FREE. There is no need to look elsewhere for your basic geospatial software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using aerial imagery in lieu of site visits, using historical aerial imagery to decipher land use changes over time, taking surface measurements (length and area)

"Unbelievably powerful Free mapping solution"

What do you like best?

There are many great things about Google Earth Pro - it's free! You can create a really impressive looking video of any route big or small anywhere in the world. You can explore our amazing planet and even see how it has changed over the decades all from the comfort of your home.

What do you dislike?

It's not so much a dislike, as the range of things you can do for free with this app is breathtaking, but the graphical tools aren't very user-friendly. Unless I'm doing it wrong, you can't easily add a shaded polygon to a location or easily change the characteristics of single polygons from an imported file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dive in and play. It's fairly intuitive and you can be travelling around the world before you know it. For more complicated tasks like plotting waypoints etc there are plenty of 3rd party websites which can create the necessary files for you to import into GEP - most are fairly easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We often need to plot a map of venues that we've recruited across the UK and occasionally demonstrate their proximity to another list of venues, e.g. within a radius of 10 miles. We can overlay additional detail readily downloaded from other resources to show postcode districts, population density and then export the resulting map with a legend, embedded html logo, map overlays and a scale. Pretty awesome for our needs basically.

What do you dislike?

I do not know which one could say that I did not like it, but this is the best one to follow.

I highly recommend not only for virtual tour use, but for our delivery businesses today, you need to know about the location of a particular address and location. Google Earth is the solution

"Helps us get an idea of the area clients are located in for provisioning"

What do you like best?

We like the way we can zoom in on a building to check it out for provisioning.

What do you dislike?

It needs a powerful computer. Some of the less powerful computers in the office struggle with Google Earth Pro.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Google Earth Pro is not being developed anymore, which is a shame.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we sign up a new client, it can be useful to have a look at the area the client is located in, to allocate adequate provisions for them. With Google Earth Pro, we can type an address and see a view from above, and a photographic view.

"Google Earth has changed our way of seeing the world"

What do you like best?

It is a great app. It allows you to know new places, read information about them.

It is one of the best applications that can exist worldwide, it is excellent for traveling, location presis and logically it is a bit heavy but it is worth it

What do you dislike?

Since the last update, you can no longer use Street View so the lines that denote Street View are shown, it shows you as not available anywhere in the world that you select

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps you find places, see them, know them without leaving your home.

"Google Earth Pro - Review June 1 2018"

What do you like best?

It is Free so no buts on return on investment

Easy to use for simple tasks.

Impressive views for business or just to admire the world

It has great Measurement Accuracy on buildings and land.

3D View of Buildings and cities it is impressive, gives yo a very realistic impression of sites and buildings as if you were there.

Flying Mode.

Response speed

Sceneries and uploaded pictures

Capacity of autoupdate images

Space view.

Easy to Travel around the world.

Geolocation accuracy

Address geocoding and identification. Extremely good at this. Even check on this to predict right address before checking with County CAD files or other mapping software.

What do you dislike?

It Crashes easily.

Limited things to do

Does not have an Data on the maps. You have to buy or import yourself

Not many add on designs

Not many pre programed tools to develop information on the map

Recommendations to others considering the product

This map tool has no data. Good tool for mapping purposes, but you have to import or buy any additional information you want to show on the map ( i.e. demographics)

No straight tools to design driving distances or territories without coding. there are other mapping applications that include all this but they are expensive.

There is not much human support. Every issue or question you have to rely on browsing the net and sometimes the responses are extremely technical.

But since the price is Free, there is no buts to the return on investment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better picture quality than Google earth

Measurements

"Full featured 2d/3d map viewer for free"

What do you like best?

The Google Earth we're all familiar with but with a few advanced tools (compared to it's browser based counterpart) with improved performance running in a native app rather than a web browser. The 3D mapping is incredibly helpful in evaluation a location and it's terrain ahead of time. The integration with google street view is invaluable, providing a real world look at a given location in addition to the topographical maps and accurate 3D rendering

What do you dislike?

Not a very useful program when there's not an internet connection available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use google earth frequently in conjunction with street view to location scout for my photography. Google Earth allows me to see the terrain as well as evaluate the light at a given time/date.

"Eyes in the Sky"

What do you like best?

I currently work for a roofing company, so we use this program a lot! It allows our estimators to preplan their visits, get an idea of the size of the property and potentially identify issues before ever walking on the property. Also, the new tour guide feature is pretty awesome.

What do you dislike?

It is sometimes hard to manipulate the map and the images are not always clear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For roofing contractors, this software is a great, free asset to assess your jobs/ appointments before ever stepping on the property.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to view the property prior to arriving at the appointment. We can identify potential issues as far as access, height, obvious roofing issues, etc.

"Excellent software for see any places in the world"

What do you like best?

I like this software for facilitating visits in various places in the world! I spend a lot of time admiring the landscapes that this program provides for us (users). I also like it because it is very easy to handle, because it has a very friendly interface.

What do you dislike?

It is a program, that until the present moment, I have not found something that does not like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using this software for leisure and for work, as it makes it easier to look at places for trips and at the same time, for mining companies, we can use to see what the terrains are like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provided me with help to do works and presentations, capturing images of current wonders.

"Excellent Tool Full of Information"

What do you like best?

I am able to view any location if I enter an address or zoom in wherever I want to in the map. I can look in 3D views, photos, satellite images etc. Image is also high quality. What is amazing that it is free! You can see around the world with Google Earth Pro! Also works on mac!

What do you dislike?

Some areas are not updated often. With how fast the infrastructure is changing, Google Earth Pro needs to keep up!

Sometimes application is very laggy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in a very large school campus and I can see how far a work site is from my office. Save us a lot of time.

"Great as an Environmental Resource"

What do you like best?

The detail in the maps makes it really helpful to determine the general conditions of a site. Also, the historical imagery is really helpful. I really like that shapefiles can be created and shared on the program and can be exported to be used with GIS or AutoCAD systems.

What do you dislike?

Some times it takes too long to zoom into a location. Also, editing a pin location or text is difficult after you close out of the pin window.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It a helpful tool for site design and site assessments. Allows for an efficient way to create a map and can be be used with other systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in the Environmental Consulting industry, so Google Earth Pro helps us with Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments as well as allows us to create shape files that can be used with our other programs.

Helpful?
