Google Earth for Mac was developed by NASA to help provide users with more detailed and in-depth information about our planet. With this, users are able to better understand global issues, explore places that are not usually visible from the ground, and learn more about the natural wonders hidden away from view. The Mac version of Google Earth was released in March of 2021 and can be downloaded free of charge. Google Earth for Mac has been available to those who have purchased the Google Earth software since the first day it was released.
Google Earth for Mac can be accessed by browsing the website and searching for keywords such as Google Earth, Google Maps, Google Earth HD, Google Earth Land, Google Earth Satellite, Google Earth Zone, or Google Earth Software. This feature allows users to search for images or historic imagery using keywords and click on them to open up a virtual map. It also enables users to switch between two different views of the same region to easily see various aspects of the historic imagery. Google Earth for Mac uses a Mac interface, which is quite similar to the regular Google interface, offering a simple and clean user experience. Unlike Google Maps, Google Earth for Mac does not include support for third party applications, but it does offer limited support for the OS X operating system itself. Google Earth for Mac also lacks access to Google Earth and instead offers its own internalized mapping solution instead.
Google Earth for Mac can also be utilized as a portal to various online destinations, allowing for users to access Google Earth as well as relevant websites from within Google Earth. This feature is referred to as Google Moon. Google Moon allows users to enter latitudes and longitudes, along with selecting specific areas within the map. In addition, Google Earth shows the name of each location, allowing users to find a place of interest even if they have no idea where it is located. Google Earth for Mac can also be used as an interactive mapping tool in itself, which is an interesting development for a product that was once simply designed as a digital version of a map.
