Google Earth 2012 is a virtual globe of Earth, created from high resolution satellite images of the planet.
Using satellite images of our planet, Google Earth service allows you to view three-dimensional images of cities in high resolution. Zooming in and out, you can see the entire Earth, as well as the building you are in at the moment. You can also set the camera route and see the directions to a particular object.
Google Earth 2012 allows you to view most recent pictures of Champs Elysees in Paris, the Liberty Statue in New York, Red Square in Moscow, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, as well as those of many other show-places around the world, in detail. Resolution of pictures is not always the same, for example the most famous and popular cities and their show-places have photos with higher resolution, than the regular ones. Also, Google have developed three-dimensional models of world famous buildings and engineering structures.
After you install and launch Google Earth 2012 you will see a navigation bar, allowing you to move the image in desired direction, rotate and zoom it. Additional features include motion video playback feature and GPS support.
Google Earth requires a PC to have three-dimensional accelerator card, so will not run on old machines.
