Freeware get direction software, reviewed by Tina de Pierre

Google Earth is an innovative free program which basically allows users to zoom in and out of places across the planet, save certain countries like North Korea. In some cases, users can zoom in to just meters away from an objects.

With the development and improvements that Google has made to this product, 3D environments are now available and you can zoom in to not only 3D terrains, but into 3D buildings in mainly large cities across the planet including the United States, the United Kingdom, South Africa and Canada, not to mention dozens more.

The application includes a library of what they call layers, which are different views which you can add to the application from landmarks to parks to regions and touristic destinations. Google Earth also provides news information as an addition to typical landmarks.

Every single new version that Google releases of Google Earth seems to include ever more interesting content and if you haven't checked it out lately, Google has actually added the Moon and Mars to its portfolio of interesting locations. Also interesting to look at is the historical imagery which has been added as of late.

Overall, an amazing application and a great way to spend a rainy day just exploring our planet.
