Last month Google removed the US$399 a year price tag from Google Earth Pro and released it for free. There is no longer any need to sign up for a licence key, simply login with your email address and the key GEPFREE. Recently, we have been having a look at some of the features unique to Google Earth Pro. Today we will have a look at the measuring tools in Google Earth Pro.
There are two ways to get measurements in Google Earth Pro. If you look at the properties of a path or polygon, there is a ‘measurements’ tab which displays length for paths or perimeter and area for polygons.
The area and perimeter of the newly released 3D along the southern coast of Portugal.
In addition, the ‘ruler’ tool has several tabs not present in the standard version of Google Earth. They allow you to measure the radius and area of circles, measure the length of 3D paths, and measure the area and perimeter of 3D polygons.
The Plaza de Toros de La Ribera in Logroño, Spain, has an area of nearly 10,000 square metres.
Using Google Earth Pro we could easily measure the height of the spires on Cologne Cathedral to be approximately 155m. Wikipedia says they are approximately 157m.
Measuring the approximate area of glass used on one of the facets of WTC 1 is easy.
