Jason B. Jones (Trinity College) has written a post on ProfHacker reflecting on the news that Google Earth Pro is now being offered for free. The Pro version of the software “adds several interesting features, some of which might be more widely interesting: it lets you work with ArcGIS data, access different data layers, batch geocode addresses, print high-resolution images, record movies, and more.”
Jones gently reminds readers that Google will continue to require a registration key that is available for download here and he helpfully points to some excellent resources for getting started with Google Earth Pro.
