Google Earth Pro Now Free For Everyone to Download

Google on Friday officially started to offer Google Earth Pro as a free download for everyone. Previously, the service was targeted at businesses and was priced at $399 per year.

The software offers additional features that aren’t present in the standard version of Google Earth, such as the ability to easily print high-res images, record movies in HD, view traffic data and demographic layers, measure area, radius and ground circumference, use GIS data and more. Now, everyone can take advantage of those features.

You’ll first need to sign up for a Google Earth Pro account, after which Google will send you a key that activates the full Pro version of its software. While it’s technically available for everyone, you’ll still need a computer that has the hardware snuff for all of its features. Google recommends at least a Pentium 4 processor clocked at 2.4GHz, 2GB of free hard drive space, at least 1GB of RAM and Windows 7 or Windows 8, which should easily cover most folks. For Mac users, Google recommends similar requirements and at least Mac OS X 10.6.8 or newer.
