Similar to Google Maps, Google Earth supplies users with the abilities to travel anywhere around the globe to view satellite images of specific locations!
Google Earth is a great tool that could be used by any body for different reasons. Individuals could view an area that they potentially wish to live in and schools could use this in Geography classes for studies on areas.
It is a free down loadable program which has the option of upgrading to the advanced version for $400.
According to Google Enterprise (2009), 'Organizations with existing investments in geographic information system (GIS) technology and data realize the full potential of these existing investments by using Google Earth as a cost-effective means of making GIS data usable by the organization's end users. This proven solution is in use by many organizations today'
Google Earth is a proven method of providing geographic information throughout the world, and a great ICT tool!
