Thanks for the feedback!
You can't update these yourself, but they are updated by Google every 1-3 years. You can, however, add your own content (placemarks, image overays, etc.) to Google Earth or… find other user-content in KML or KMZ files.

Google clearly spells out what you can and cannot do with theirproducts including Google Maps. Since maps and imagery change allthe time, Google prefers websites link to an in…teractive GoogleMaps via the Google Maps API but there are instances wherescreenshots to Google Maps imagery is allowed given the rules arefollowed. For details check out the Google Maps and Google Earth permissionstool.
by satellite and other things like planes and things that can go above the ground
Here's a citation from Mark Aubin's post at the Google Librarian Central, about the source of Google Images: "We collect it via airplane and satellite, but also just about …any way you can imagine getting a camera above the Earth's surface: hot air balloons, model airplanes - even kites." . Please see the whole post at the related link from Google. . And, for extra credit, see the blog post about "How Google Earth (Really) Works" by a co-founder of Keyhole, who first built what became Google Earth. Google Earth acquires their images from many sources. Some of these sources include from satellites in space, airplanes flying over particular locations, and people that drive along the street, taking pictures and video of the area.
In theory, yes but you will encounter issues such as lower imagequality and incompatibilities as to which compression algorithmsare used.
I want to build a website and if I want to use different images from a Google search can I do that or is there a place where you can legally buy images and pictures to use on your website?
I would not use photos from search engines do to copy rights, photoweb sites like stormythoughts.com has many high resolution imagesto choose from for web usees and more.
This seems to be the best answer I have found. The guy works for the Centre of Geographic Sciences so he should know what he is talking about. See related links for example…s.
Some websites use the Google Earth plugin and visiting such awebsite would prompt you to download the plugin from Google if youdon't already have Google Earth plugin installed…. This is installedwhen you install the Google Earth application. If you want to download the Google Earth application it can bedownload for free from the Google Earth website, whose URL can befound in related links below. Otherwise just search: "D ownloadGoogle Earth" and the first result with the website from thedomain earth.google.com is the one to use (after the ads).
In Google Earth select Add > Image Overla yin the menu then select an image file to overlay onto the ground. You can set the transparency level and position the image on t…hemap. If, however, you want to add geo-tagged photos that becomepublically displayed in Google Earth and Google Maps then you canpublish them to the Panoramio web site. You can request that it bepublished to Google Photo layer. For details check out thePanoramio Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
No. However, if you click "I'm feeling lucky," it will.
Google Earth provides a 3-D effect with 3-D buildings and tree as overlays on top of the base imagery. Also with terrain enabled in Google Earth, the satellite imagery conform…s to the topology so mountains (e.g. Mt Everest, etc.) appear in 3-D. For stereo 3-D views for Google Earth (i.e., 3-D glasses) see related reference link below.
not at the moment, but you can put a screenshot of Google maps onto your website. to add a Google maps screenshot to your site, go to Google maps, find the location you want …to add to your site, click the chain under the search bar, then put the embed code onto your your site, and then you're done!
Google Earth is downloaded from google's web site (www.google.com)and the servers that Google Earth fetches imagery and layersinclude the following hosts: . maps.google.com… (address data) . geoauth.google.com (license authentication) . kh.google.com (imagery) . mw1.google.com (balloon content) . gmw2.google.com (balloon content) If you have a connection issue first check your browser andinternet settings. Also try clearing your cache or try a differentweb browser. If that does not work try Google's ConnectionTroubleshooter in related links below.
There are multiple ways to print the current view from GoogleEarth. The built-in way is pressing the print short-cut (e.g.Ctrl-P on Windows) or select Print option in File men…u. This willprint the map panel only. If if want to print the sidebar and wholeGoogle Earth display you need to take a screen capture of thescreen and paste the image from the clipboard into an applicationto print it.
