How to use Google Earth

Once you have download and installed the app, open it. You will see the Earth from above on a black background, a bar with some options on the left-hand site of the screen and some buttons on the lower right-hand site of the screen.

Here you have some tips:
• You can zoom with the mouse wheel, by clicking on the button “+” on the lower right-hand site of the screen or by using the “pinch” gesture in a touchscreen. You can also rotate the Earth with the mouse or with your finger.
• The bar on the left-hand site of your screen contains different information about your Google account and the options available.

Options available:

Search: you will be able to search for any place on the Earth. Type any city, monument, street… and Google Earth will automatically show you that place. In addition, some information about this place will be shown by WikiPedia. Some places are available in 3D and you can also use Google Street View (both buttons are on the lower right-hand site of the screen).

Voyager: Google Earth also includes information about different countries or topics, so you can learn more about the culture, nature, history of a specific place…  There are different options, choose between Editor’s picks, Games, Layers, Street View, Nature, Culture, Travel, Education… and Google Earth will show you some trips or information related to the topic you have chosen.

I’m feeling lucky: this button will show you interesting places randomly.
Projects: from this option, you can create different personalized maps. Add information, photos, texts, videos or stories about places around the world. Mark those spots you find interesting or you like the most. In addition, you can share your projects with your friends, family o collaborators.

Map Style: this option helps you see maps with/without borders, labels, roads, transit, landmarks… You can even customize the map style.
Measure distance and area: it allows you to measure distance and area between some points by clicking on the map.
