Google Earth lets
users view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings and even
explore galaxies in the Sky. You can explore rich geographical content,

The software maps the earth by the superimposition of images
obtained from satellite imagery, aerial photography and GIS 3D globe.
As well as being a standalone program, it is also available as
