Google has released a version of its popular Google Earth program for the Macintosh. Google launched Google Earth last June for Windows.
The free program lets people search for a location on a map of the world and get an aerial view, zoom in to see 3D images of buildings and landscapes and tilt and rotate images. The panning feature that whisks viewers to and from specified locations and gives a veritable fly-by view of the earth is quite impressive.
Google Earth for Mac is available for download at www.earth.google.com. Google Earth Plus and Google Earth Pro are not yet available for the Mac, Google said.
