Google Earth (GE)
  • You first must have Google Earth on your desktop. It's free.
  • If you do not have Google Earth, "get Google Earth"
    (That page will also show system requirements.)
  • In InfoBank, when available, Google Earth (GE) links appear after the "Virtual Globes:"
  • When selected, the file will download into your "Downloads" folder.
  • Clicking on the file will open it in Google Earth.
  • Google's Google Earth User Guide is available to get you started.
