Google Earth and Google Maps are two mapping applications each with their own strengths. Google Maps is a web application that runs in a web browser, and Google Earth is a desktop or mobile application. Sometimes Google Maps is better for a given situation (e.g. finding directions) and other times Google Earth is better if you want a more emersive virtual tour of a mountainous terrain. Google Earth can directly plugin to a GPS device showing the location in 3-D view. Over the years Google has blurred the line between Google Maps and Google Earth making it easy to switch from one to another. Primarily Google Earth gives you a 3-D view while Google Maps gives a user a 2-D view, but you can switch to a Google Earth plugin view from Google Maps for the 3-D view. Likewise, you can switch to Google Maps from a given view in Google Earth.
