Most of us have used the Google Earth software, but not many of us have used the Pro version that is priced at a hefty $399 per year. However, now each one of us can get a taste of the Pro features as Google makes it absolutely free.
With Google Earth Pro, which was earlier aimed at professional explorers, one can now access features such as advanced measurement tools, additional import options and high-res photo printing. It also allows governments and organisations to create detailed maps and HD fly-through videos using the data stored in Google.
Google Earth Pro comes with some extra features such as measuring 3D buildings, recording videos, printing high-resolution screenshots, etc.
Google Earth Pro features list:
- View demographic, parcel and traffic data layers

- Print high-resolution screenshots
- Make compelling offline movies to share

In the official Lat-long blog, “Starting today, even more people will be able to access Google Earth Pro: we’re making it available for free. Google Earth Pro has all the easy-to-use features and detailed imagery of Google Earth, along with advanced tools that help you measure 3D buildings, print high-resolution images for presentations or reports, and record HD movies of your virtual flights around the world. ”
However, Google hasn’t really mentioned the reason for making it a freeware. Tech enthusiasts have been speculating several reasons from rise in competition from other mapping software like Apple Maps and also the possibility that the software wasn’t making money anyway.
