What is Google Earth?

Google Earth is a computer program that renders a 3D representation of Earth based mainly on satellite imagery.

This program maps the Earth by superimposing satellite images. Aerial photography. And GIS data onto a 3D globe. Enabling users to view cities and landscapes from various angles.

Users then can search the globe by entering addresses and coordinates, or by using a keyboard or mouse. The program can also be downloaded on a smartphone or tablet, using a touch screen or stylus to navigate.
