Google Earth provides access to vast amounts of global satellite, aerial and street-level imagery that Google makes available to the public through high-end enterprise-grade data servers in Google's data centers.

The Google Earth client is basically a specialized web browser that shows the results on a map and "bookmarks" or "favorites" are called Places.

Google Earth helps people to see and better understand the Earth. It allows anyone to pick up a mouse and see a street or building on the other side of world without leaving their bedroom or office.

In more critical situations Google Earth can provide first responders with a free and easy way to aggregate many locations and pin point them on a map as well as overlay historical and current imagery.
