Google Earth offers the possibility of interactively studying the terrestrial globe, which makes it a fun and educational software. It works from a satellite positioning system that makes it possible to consult the most remote areas of the planet. The program saves at regular time intervals photos of places with a certain historical value. To access it, the tool provides users with a chronological slider allowing them to literally go back in time thanks to archive images.

Google Earth is also associated with software for designing 3D models, allowing you to design buildings or monuments in three dimensions. The combined use of these two tools has given rise to very realistic 3D images of cities, neighborhoods and monuments around the world.

Scientists recognize that this software is a significant contribution insofar as one can have a very enlightened vision of planets and satellites. The tool also has NASA images, guided tours and a selection of 360 degree panoramas. Google earth offers the Street View feature, which allows you to visualize the streets as if you were a pedestrian and display 360* views. To do this, just zoom in enough until you see an orange character (named “peg man”) near the zoom controls:

All you have to do is drag and drop this character onto the street to be viewed, to see the street view display mode appear.

The advanced option of the program allows the user to record his visits and share them with his relatives. If necessary, advanced users can import KML, KMZ files or even GPS data.
