Over the years we’ve shown you a wide variety of add-ons that can be used with Google Earth to make it more useful, and TechRepublic has recently posted a list of their favorite five.
Their list includes:
1 – SketchUp: Our favorite 3D modeling tool.
2 – RoboGEO: A tool to geotag image files.
3 – KMZ to GPS Converter: The name sums it up; convert your KML or KMZ files into GPS files.
4 – The Google Earth API: We’ve shown you many games (such as the classic Ships) and tools over the years that use the GE API, as it can be very powerful.
5 – Cache for Google Earth: A third-party program that helps extend the usefulness of the Google Earth cache for offline use.
If you’re wanting to extend the usefulness of Google Earth, this list is a great place to start. For more, check out the full list on the TechRepublic site.
