Many have found a better alternative to the old maps and business location plans; the Google Maps service.

Google Earth is a free multiplatform application with which you can view the earth from pictures taken from a satellite.

With this program you can have a virtual bird’s eye view of any city in the world, by observing the images taken from satellites, including maps, topographical relief, or 3D images of buildings and other constructions.

Activate Street View and you will be able to travel the streets of any city and see the buildings, avenues, and monuments just as if you were there.

That's not all! In its latest version, Google Earth also allows us to look at the sky from the point of view of the planet and also take a look at the bottom of the ocean.

The program has a simple and intuitive platform that is moved by the simple click and drag of the mouse, which will allow you to move throughout the planet.

Additionally, Google Earth incorporates various tools that will allow you to read geo-located Wikipedia articles, find business and companies, look at photography taken around the world, and even find real time traffic information.

Now the latest version of Google Earth has jumped lightyears ahead of all that, offering an impressive interface from which to explore the world with an unimaginable precision and level of detail, and with added tools for discovering remote places all around the planet.
