Google Earth Reviews
We have 4 reviews for Google Earth. The average overall ratings is 3.2 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: Researching is what you need to learn what you are after. The Government has restrictions on what YOU can see unless you work for specialized departments inside the government. Our satellites can view real time and so close that they can tell what you are reading on a newspaper while sitting on a park bench. BUT if this was available to the public do you have any idea how dangerous this would be to our security and freedom? Actually worse then the disgusting cheating that had gone on with the elections. https://www.wired.com/story/how-the-government-controls-sensitive-satellite-data/
Pros: I do believe that what I need and want to see for my house and the improvements that I have done that Google Maps has been more than accurate. OK So it is a year or two behind. It doesn't matter to most people not intending on doing our country harm or tracking individuals.
Cons: Sorry but I can't find any cons
Overall Opinion: We track land, owners, zoning, planning maps. It “was” excellent for placing the city limits on towns, overlaying zoning maps, placing pins with data, highlighting parcels, overlaying subdivions. The best part was immediately jumping from town to town to review data on specific land that a client was interested in Perfect for snagging properties, and street view images for brochures Tracking apartments/owners/contact info Downside: after ten years of use it started crashing on me. Losing weekend of not months of imputed data! It bogs down Absolutely “no” customer service. No support! Even all the Google Earth blogs I have been too are upset and frustrated! Not worth taking the chance of spending hours of imputing just to lose it
Pros: Speed Clear Easy to use
Cons: Crashes constantly Can only handle very small jobs before it bogs down Cannot open more than one version of GE! Loss of hours of data
Overall Opinion: It's almost as if this program is an afterthought for Google, and they don't care about making it more user friendly. It's ridiculous. Also, it's very glitchy. Very frequently, it will not perform as intended. In the couple years that I've been using the program, not much has changed to make it better.
Pros: It's amazing technology that has so much potential! I like that you can get some rough estimates in distances using the ruler tool.
Cons: This program is very glitchy and not user friendly. I actually took a class on using Google Earth. Even that didn't help much. Unbelievable. I used to teach an AutoCAD Civil 3D class which strives to incorporate Google Earth in its functions. Forget it, the students were pulling their hair out to try to get it to work according to instructions.
Overall Opinion: The level of detail Google Earth achieves offers endless opportunities for gathering data, researching neighborhoods and exploring the world in rich detail that refreshes itself consistently. The company's massive focus on fine-tuning this powerful tool is evident in the evolution this software has taken from mapping terrain to fully simulating navigational features. The Street View feature shows the true scale of Google Earth's reality-inspired vision, a project that continues to refine its method of capturing photographic images of every corner of the world in order to maintain its massive database. Continued developments have also led to ocean views beneath the surface, as well as underwater data for America's Great Lakes. Mars, the moon and other celestial wonders have all been given the Google Earth treatment, as well, and provide a trove of scientific perspective on the planets and galaxies both near and far, far away. Features like these have led to such enthusiastic followings among fans of Google Earth that the company allows for a variety of ways to get involved with development. Because of the authority Google Earth holds as a digital mapping and geographic measuring tool, many organizations and academic institutions depend on its data for their work. Researchers with the University of Maryland have used its information in their reports and the Carnegie Institute for Sciences partnered with Google to build maps for gathering environmental data. Certain areas of the world and highly classified locations cannot be shown via any of Google Earth's layers, a move some may think is controversial or necessary depending on the need. Google Earth continues to develop its maps in accordance and agreement with other organizations and governing bodies to abide by laws and protections for each location.
Pros: Industry-leading technology and capability for navigation and terrain study. Different layers include various pieces of media like photos and videos related to a location. Crowd-sourced information works with certain features like those related to traffic and commercial details.
Cons: Images created with Google Earth's satellite data are considered copyrighted to Google Earth. Only allows non-commercial and personal use of images created with Google Earth. Certain features may only be available or compatible with browser-based or desktop versions.
