Google Earth Plus and Google Earth offer entertainment and information for personal use; Google Earth Pro offers powerful features for business and commercial use. Although our images are the same for all products, these can be distinguished by their functions.
Google Earth free Version
The free version of Google Earth, intended for non-commercial personal use, allows an interactive exploration in 3D of the planet through terabytes of aerial imagery and satellite. You zoom to specific places, see 3D terrain and buildings or looking for hotels or restaurants along with dozens of other attractions data layers. The results are displayed in the 3D Earth Viewer, so it's easy to search in multiple layers, save results to folders and share them with other users.
Google Earth Plus
Google Earth Plus offers all of the above and more. Some of its features are:
-Higher resolution printing for large and sharp results.
-Data import (which allows you to view up to 100 addresses of .csv files).
-Import of GPS data, allowing you to read points of monitoring and signalling of selected GPS devices.
Google Earth Pro
For professional and commercial use, Google Earth Pro is the research, presentations, and more advanced collaboration tool for geographic information. If you use Google Earth for business purposes, the Pro version is what you need. Google Earth Pro includes:
-A tool for measuring areas (to measure square meters, kilometers, acres, radios, etc.).
-Data import (which allows you to process up to 2,500 locations by address or by latitude and longitude coordinates).
-The best features of printing and storage (allowing prints large and crisp, of up to 4,800 pixels).
-Creator of movies.
-Importer of GIS data.
-Print Premium (which allows you to print high resolution images of size up to A3 or 4,800 pixels).
-By chat or e-mail customer support.

The NASA Hubble Telescope has revolutionized astronomy and has served as inspiration for a whole generation thanks to the wonderful prospects of the universe that offers. Through this application, are allowed to observe 20 favorite images of the Space Telescope Science Institute allowing us to travel to the ends of the universe.

For lovers of geography Google Earth is a technological marvel, those who, like me, have spent hours virtually navigating sites that we've ever been and we never go, they will agree with me.
A much appreciated feature is to store navigation data in a file cache on the hard drive that allows us to browse offline without perceiving the difference that being connected to the network. This is really important when you go to a place where there isn't any access to the internet and carry all the information that you could save that location, also for people like me that the time of access to the internet is limited by what we have to take advantage of the resources of the programme in the cache of your netbook.
But that disappointment when we note that it was deleted what we had already saved and that cost us time download. Technically Google Earth has a cache file that will keeping all our navigation data, but often when we re-connect overwrites it and there is no way to recover it.
The only solution option to avoid this and make sure that we have a clean copy safe from everything we are able to download consists of the following:
Create multiple cache files, which you can download in different sessions, save them and then load them separately, in the same way to as open with our software Word several different, independent documents one of others.
By default Google Earth saves your file cache on the route c:UsersnombredeusuarioAppDataLocalLowGoo gleGoogleEarth if you use Windows Vista or 7, what we'll do next is get off two small bat files that will do all the work of backup and restoration by us. One of them called 1crear_backup creates a copy of your cache and the other 2restaurar_backup restore the backup that you want to browse while disconnected from the network.
Assuming that you already conectaste Internet, sailed by the places that interest you and saved everything you could, then close the program and disconnect from the network.
Run the first file called: 1crear_backup, the will automatically create a copy of the cache of the application in a folder called BACKUP, the command will create in drive D, in case that you have only a unit, create the folder on drive C.
Manually rename the copy called GoogleEarth with the name that you want to differentiate them from which they will do another time, for example NewYorkCity (preferably well without spaces).
Then get a copy of the second command called 2restaurar_backup inside that folder and so on every time you make a new copy has to be inside a copy of the second command.
You can subsequently make many copies of cache you want, each of them with the second command inside.
When you decide to browse offline in one of these locations or even add more data to the cache simply, (two clicks) the command 2restaurar_backup that has within it the copy that you choose and it will replace the original file from Google Earth with the copy that you chose. Will always be a except files in the BACKUP folder, even though you have to reinstall the operating system (of course if they are not on the C drive).
When you go to cache a new zone runs Google Earth and enters in tools > options > Cache and press delete cache file allowing you to create one from scratch.
The procedure is quite simple even for users who do not have any knowledge of computing or no skill in the use of PC.

Google Earth is a computer program that displays a virtual globe that displays multiple cartography, photography-based satellite.
The program was created under the name of EarthViewer 3D Keyhole Inc company, financed by the Central Intelligence Agency. The company was bought by Google in 2004 by absorbing the application.
Google Earth map is composed of a superimposition of images obtained from satellite, aerial photography, geographic information from images of the world GIS data models and models created by computer. The program is available in several licenses, but the free version is the most popular available for mobile devices, tablets, and personal computers.
The first version of Google Earth was launched in 2005 and is currently available on PC for Windows, Mac and Linux. Google Earth is also available as a plugin to be viewed from the web browser. In 2013 Google Earth had become the most popular program to visualize cartography, with more than 1 billion downloads. 1 2
Many users use the application to add their own data, making them available through various sources, such as blogs or Bulletin Board Systems. Google Earth can show different layers of image on top of the base and is also a valid client for a Web Map Service. Google Earth supports by using the Keyhole Markup Language files three-dimensional geospatial data or. kml.
Initially, Keyhole was a program of payment until October 27, 2004 it was purchased by Google. On 21 May 2005 Keyhole was renamed Google Earth. In June 2005 the main novelty was, apart from the change of name and owner, that the program had a free version (unlike Keyhole, which was payment in all its versions, although it was possible to have a trial version for a limited time). This program also incorporates Maps, which serves to find streets, avenues and business and enlarge them in a very realistic way.
The Google Earth software is available in several versions:
According to the level of benefits: these are divided into two paid versions and a free version.
Depending on the operating system: Google provides updates for Windows (XP and 2000), and the novelty of 2006 is the version for Mac OS operating system. On June 12, 2006, Google released the first version of Google Earth for Linux (Beta 4).
The version of Google, 4.x, has a component that allows that he is displayed on any operating system, referred to as QT4, product of a Dutch company. Therefore the usability in terms of operating systems is very extensive.
Version 5 allowed the three-dimensional scan of the bottom of the oceans, by adding, at the same time, animation of movement of surface water in seas and oceans. In this regard was also added a specific layer of information.
Version 188.8.131.525 beta allows better integration of Google Street View in Google Earth. Add trees in three dimensions for some cities in the United States, Europe and Japan. Access to historical images (where any) was also streamlined.
The latest version (6.2) integrates the possibility to login with Google account, save the data stored in Google Earth and share photos taken on Google +.
