Google Earth is already amazing all by itself. It allows you to visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, explore the depths of the ocean, check out the pockmarked surface of the moon, and even take a trip to Mars — all without leaving the comfort of your home or office. It even allows you to create a virtual GPS tour, which lets you plan your next trip or recreate your last vacation for your loved ones to see.
All of these features are great for personal use. But what if you need Google Earth’s features plus more for your business? Well, in this case, the best thing to do is to get Google Earth Pro. It has all the things that Google Earth has, plus a wide range of advanced tools that allow you to use geographic data to make your business grow.
There’s no need to worry about costs since Google Earth Pro is completely free. It used to cost $399, but Google changed this on 2015 and made the product free for everybody. You can download it into your computer (it’s compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux) by taking these steps:
- Scroll down on and click on the “Agree and Download” button. (Note: Clicking the button automatically downloads the latest version of Google Earth Pro, which is version 7.1 as of this writing. If you want to download an older version, click on the “advanced setup” link just above the “Agree and Download” button.)
- If you’re using a Windows computer, open the .exe file that has been downloaded and follow the instructions to install Google Earth Pro in your device. If you’re using a Mac computer, you’ll need a DMG file and a PKG installer to complete the installation.
- Pull up Google Earth Pro and create an account. Input your email address and, in the box that asks for the License Key, type in “GEPFREE”. You’ll want to enable automatic login (just check the box beside it) so you won’t need to type in your email address and License Key every type you want to use Earth Pro.
Take the steps above to download Google Earth Pro for free.
