EarthBrowser is now even faster and offers some new features including real-time satellites. An online API is just around the corner which will extend the application even further.

EarthBrowser Version 3.11

There are many schools which haven’t been able to install Google Earth across a network (mine included) and I view the two applications as being broadly complementary. Google Earth is great for spatial decision-making that requires high resolution imagery, while EarthBrowser is a better alternative when using global data sets such as webcams, volcanoes earthquakes and storms – which are all available within a single click from the main screen, as opposed to the increasingly complex Layers within Google Earth.

If you haven’t looked at EarthBrowser recently, do give it a try. It’s a free, super-fast download, and a site license is available.
