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.
Google Maps has following different views:Map ViewSatellite ViewEarth View (*)Street View(*) Note Earth View is using the Google Earth API, which is basically running Google Earth within the web browser as a plugin.
Here is one of Google's announcements of ending Street View support for Google Earth versions 5.x and older. "With the most recent update to Google Earth (6.2), we are also finalizing our transition to a new method of delivering Street View imagery in Google Earth. This means, that the older versions of Google Earth (anything before 6.0) will no longer be able to access Street View. We held off making this change until now, when the vast majority of Google Earth users are on 6.0 (or later)." -- Google Jan 2012. Basically, Google decided to improve the Street View interfaces which would be implemented in the current versions of Google Earth for desktop and mobile platforms rather than keep supporting the older (less efficient) method of accessing Street View.
