Google Earth Enterprise 4.0 released

Called “The ultimate geo mashup platform”, Google Earth Enterprise 4.0 has been released. You may be familiar with Google Earth Enterprise, as it has been used for projects such as Louisiana Earth.
Among the new features in GEE 4.0 is one called the “Portable Earth System”. In many uses of GEE, people need access to their information in places where internet connectivity is limited or simply non-existent. Here is how that feature works.

Other enhancements in GEE 4.0 include Mobile Access via the Google Earth client on Android, full support for Google Earth 5.2 and the latest version of the Google Earth Plug-in.
For more on GEE 4.0, you can check out the full write-up on the Google LatLong Blog.

  1. I like the idea to use GE offline, on the go, but is it free to use like GE or is it like GE Pro where you have to pay to use it?

    GEE v 4.0 very good I have question
    – can we connect gps software to GEE if yes what implementations best practices?
    Thank you
    Best Regards

  3. Do any of the Google Earth Extensions provide the functionality of ‘Get Directions’ (with Transit Options) on a privately owned network?
    I understand GE Enterprise allows one to use their own data within Google Earth – is the ‘Get Directions’ tool able to be used on private network datasets?
