Shots of Earth

Google Earth lets you view the world from space and zoom in on towns, roads, and buildings. We’ll show you how to travel our planet’s surface, its cities, and even the sky from your desktop.

Google Earth brings hi-res aerial views of the whole Earth to your computer desktop. Among other things, the latest full release, Google Earth 5, integrates satellite and aerial images with Wikipedia text, 3D models, and photos from Panoramio.
