<p class="entry-meta"><time class="entry-time">June 21, 2018</time> </p></header><div class="entry-content"><p>Yesterday Google released a new version of Google Earth Pro (for the Desktop version of Google Earth &#8211; not mobile) version 7.3.2. I&#8217;ve copied the highlights from their <a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/maps/g9YRHIfb9aA">announcement post</a> at the Google Earth and Maps forum down below. The new version addresses a number of issues with different platforms and features, but the most significant news is that Google has finally addressed a long-needed feature for manipulating places content in the sidebar. This has probably been the most frequently wanted feature by power users of Google Earth since it was first released. Yes, Google has finally implemented the ability to multi-select places content and drag and drop to different folders, or delete a multi-selected area. See screenshot of dragging and dropping items from one folder to another below:</p>

<p>You can get the new version now by going to the Google Earth Pro for Desktop <a href="https://www.google.com/earth/desktop/">download page</a>. Google will be automatically updating users who already have Google Earth Pro installed (if you allowed that during your installation).</p>
<p>It is good to see Google continuing to support Google Earth Pro on the desktop. Especially since the desktop version has far more features and performance capabilities verses the new web and mobile versions which has most of Google&#8217;s development focus these days.</p>
<p>Here are the release notes from the post:</p>
<h2>What&#8217;s New In Google Earth Pro 7.3.2</h2>

<p class="entry-meta"><time class="entry-time">April 18, 2018</time> </p></header><div class="entry-content"><p>A year ago, Google held a fancy venue in a New York museum to announce the next grand release of Google Earth. A complete re-write of the underlying application which finally unified the Google Maps (more current) mapping data with a formerly independent (and aging not-updated) dataset used by Google Earth on the desktop for years. The good news is that the application ran surprisingly well in Chrome and on Android (as mentioned in <a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2017/04/first-review-new-google-earth.html">my review</a>). The bad news, for a lot of veteran fans of Google Earth on the desktop, was that most of the tools most valued (measuring tools, content creation tools, GPS support, and much more), and a great deal of support for Google Earth content, was missing in the first release of the new platform. The focus for the first release was to get basic browsing, and to support the new &#8220;Voyager&#8221; exploration tools to allow more web-like dynamic content to overlay the geographic content to tell &#8220;stories&#8221;. I was assured by Google that a lot of effort was going in to incorporate missing power features for the fans of Google Earth. In the meantime, Google assured us they would continue to support the desktop version, and they have indeed (as <a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2018/01/google-earth-pro-7-3-1-released.html">mentioned here</a>).</p>
<p>For a while after the event, I attempted to calm down the reactions from long-time fans. But, in Google&#8217;s attempt to highlight their &#8220;accomplishments&#8221; with the first release, they downplayed the value of the more powerful and useful version for the desktop on their <a href="https://www.google.com/earth/">home page</a> with a single link (still true today) that said &#8220;Older version&#8221; (they changed that finally to say &#8220;Earth Pro for Desktop&#8221;). I suggested to them they should give it more prominence, but that didn&#8217;t really happen. And, the reality is that after waiting about 5 years for new Google Earth capabilities, the new version was a disappointment to its fans. Eventually, my frustration grew to a point that this blog was <a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2017/07/google-earth-fan-site-ending-daily-blog-posts-starting-today.html">essentially stopped</a> after 12 years of almost daily posts. After the wonderful way Google Earth grew in the first 8 years or so after it was launched, and the fantastic support Google gave to its huge growing fan base, it was disheartening to watch how this next phase in development started. I&#8217;ve been waiting for a sign that things would get better.</p>
<p>Unfortunately, there has been little sign of improvement to the Google Earth for Chrome/Mobile version as an application. Although, I&#8217;m sure they did a lot of behind-the-scenes work tweaking performance and fixing issues as people started using it. The biggest positive visible change I&#8217;ve noted was the addition of the new photos layer for the new Earth platform. But, there have been no additions of useful basic geographic tools as promised (rulers, GPS support, etc.). There were also a number of promoted content releases using Earth for Chrome like the <a href="https://www.blog.google/products/earth/google-earth-live-exploreorg-invites-you-hang-out-alaskan-brown-bears/">Live Bear Cam</a>, stories <a href="https://www.blog.google/products/earth/i-am-amazon-discover-your-connection-rainforest-google-earth/">about the Amazon</a>, and the expected release of the Apple IOS version of the new Earth app in August 2017.</p>
<p>The new photos layer is a sad comparison to the former Panoramio layer which had a vast curated collection of georeferenced photos globally. I used the Panoramio layer extensively to help research places we traveled around the world. But, early this year, the much-loved Panoramio layer in the desktop version of Google Earth Pro was mothballed in favor of this new layer. The old icons of the Panoramio photos can still be seen, but you can&#8217;t see the photos. And, it&#8217;s clear comparing the new photo icons that there were far more useful Panoramio photos (many locations have photos that the new layer does not). Rumor has it Google was going to incorporate many of the Panoramio photos in the new layer. But, now months later nothing visible has changed there.</p>
<p>Who knows, maybe Google is working hard on new exciting features for the new Chrome/Mobile platform? But, I&#8217;m not hearing about it on the ground or in rumors. And, yes, I&#8217;ve asked. I still regularly use the desktop version of Google Earth Pro. And, I do like using the web version if for no other reason than the fact it has more accurate map data to overlay on it, and because I&#8217;m impressed it runs so well in a browser. Maybe Google has continued to work on a strategy to port to other browsers. Maybe they have made a ton of progress on new features, but they just aren&#8217;t far enough along to release any of them.</p>
<p>I have this sense that the release of the new version has only depressed the former popularity of Google Earth only further. This despite <a href="https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today%205-y&#038;q=google%20earth">Google search trends show it stagnating</a> at most. In part, because nearly all the developers of the formerly more powerful desktop version have left since the development tools are no longer functioning, or have no promise of future support. And, also, because so many long-time fans have also gone missing. Or maybe because my blog is no longer active.</p>
<p>On the bright side, a different team at Google has done amazing work with <a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2016/11/google-releases-google-earth-vr-htc-vive.html">Google Earth VR</a>. Here is the official <a href="https://vr.google.com/earth/">Google Earth VR website</a>. It&#8217;s the most amazing new version of Google Earth I&#8217;ve seen in years. But, it&#8217;s use is sadly limited to a very small segment of people who have invested in VR for the desktop PCs (mostly Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but also a growing list of other headsets will be capable of supporting it). And, a growing number of venues (museums and VR arcades) offer Google Earth VR. Good news is that VR headset prices have come down a lot in the last year, and desktop PCs that support the platform are more common.</p>
<p>Finally, good news is that Google has continued to support the addition of more and better content to view in Google Earth (more Street View, more 3D Cities, etc.). It&#8217;s still the largest, most amazing view of the Earth you can get &#8211; outside of going places in person. I hold on to a few rays of hope.</p>

<p class="entry-meta"><time class="entry-time">January 23, 2018</time> </p></header><div class="entry-content"><p>Last night Google released a <strong>new version of the desktop version of Google Earth Pro version 7.3.1</strong> (which is <strong>free</strong> despite the confusing &#8220;Pro&#8221; name). You can download this at the download page found here: <a href="https://www.google.com/earth/desktop/">www.google.com/earth/desktop/</a></p>
<p>This new version 7.3.1 represents some significant work by Google to add &#8220;<strong>bug fixes, performance and feature improvements, and security upgrades.</strong>&#8221; &#8211; as seen in the announcement post in the <a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/maps/Lk39vUdm0Kk">Google Earth help forum here</a>.</p>
<p>I am showing the full release notes below, but I want  to explain some things about this version to those of you who might be confused about the different versions of Google Earth out there:</p>
<p>There are two distinct versions of Google Earth currently: <strong>Google Earth Pro</strong> (for desktop OSes: Windows 7+, Mac OS 10.8+, and Linux) and <strong>Google Earth  for Chrome and Mobile</strong> (web-based and Android/IOS). The web/mobile version is a new partial re-write of the original Google Earth software, but is much more limited in many ways &#8211; in particular because you can&#8217;t create content with it for placing on the Earth (<a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2017/04/first-review-new-google-earth.html">read review</a> of its release last April). The desktop version, <strong>Google Earth Pro</strong>, on the other hand has all the features for creating content derived from the last 13+ years of development on Google Earth, and provides you with a wealth of built-in layers and content, as well as many ways to view content (as documented on this blog since 2005). Eventually, Google says they plan to incorporate more features in the web/mobile version. But, until then, they plan to continue to support the more powerful desktop version of Google Earth Pro. [<b>UPDATE: </b>I should have said &#8220;<strong>three distinct versions</strong>&#8220;, because there is also <a href="https://vr.google.com/earth/">Google Earth VR</a>. But, only a small segment of population have access to high-end VR devices which can run it (Rift, Vive, and the new Windows VR devices).]</p>
<p>Since the web/mobile version is a long way from replacing the desktop version, it is important to <strong>thank Google</strong> for continuing to support Google Earth Pro. This new version 7.3.1 incorporates a wide range of bug fixes, security and performance enhancements, and even some new features (a condensed list is in the release notes below) for all operating systems supported. The actual fixes are too numerous (and for most too boring) to list, but Google has been listening to feedback on the <a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/maps">help forum</a> and fixing those which have the greatest impact. My favorite change happens to be the fix which supports higher refresh displays which run faster than 120Hz. Also, of particular note is support for Windows 64-bit version.</p>

<p class="entry-meta"><time class="entry-time">July 31, 2017</time> </p></header><div class="entry-content"><p>This is a post I have been reluctant to write. I started this blog 12 years ago to bring news and share enthusiasm about one of the best software applications, and datasets, I have ever seen. Still to this day, I am amazed when I use Google Earth and the incredible wealth of data that Google has shared with everyone for free. I am going to start this post with a short statement and explain what our readers should expect. In a more lengthy background dialogue below, I try to tactfully describe what has lead me to this action. This decision was reached after a few months of consideration.</p>
<h2>Announcement</h2>
<p>I have decided, after a dozen years of publishing this blog, it is time for me to stop. As a fan, writer, and publisher, I really care about the Google Earth product, and our readers. But as a person, I need to focus my life on other things. It&#8217;s possible, if Google produces something really notable, I will write another post or two about amazing things of Google Earth. But, I will not resume daily posts. I <strong>plan to continue running the GEB server</strong> because many of the thousands of posts are found useful by Google Earth&#8217;s millions of world-wide users.</p>
<p>I will be directing readers to communicate with Google&#8217;s <a href="https://support.google.com/earth/?hl=en#topic=">online help forums</a> to try and obtain answers to questions. For a while, I will try and address some of the many comments and questions we get on the blog. But, those will stop soon. I will continue to respond to long-time GEB readers and friends by E-mail for a while as well.</p>
<p>I want to give <b>special thanks to Mickey Mellen</b> who took over writing this blog from 2009 when I left to <a href="https://www.tahinaexpedition.com">sail around the world</a>, and to <b>Timothy Whitehead</b> who took over in late-2014 when Mickey had to focus on other business.  They both worked hard to maintain the Google Earth Blog purpose and style, and I greatly appreciate their efforts. We hope the readers of this blog enjoyed what we produced, and the help we gave in E-mails and comments, as much as we enjoyed doing them.</p>
<p>It&#8217;s been an amazing 12 years. I hope Google Earth, or superior successors, will continue for a long time to come.</p>
<h2>Background Explanation</h2>
<p>A lot has changed at Google in the 12 years this blog has been documenting Google Earth&#8217;s evolution. Many of those changes were good &#8211; the Google Maps and Earth division staff grew significantly, and new features like Panoramio photos, Street View, Google Earth Outreach, Google Mars, Moon, Ocean, and countless other features and layers were added to the product.</p>
<p>But, in recent years, Google Earth development languished. Staff was reduced, and during the last three years all of the top staff who were involved with its original creation have left (<strong>John Hanke</strong> left Google with Niantic &#8211; which created Ingress and Pokemon Go, <strong>Brian McClendon</strong> left to join Uber, and <strong>Michael Jones</strong> left to be involved with tech startups and investment groups). I enjoyed greatly working with these guys, and they were very supportive of Google Earth Blog and my efforts to document the enthusiasm of all things Google Earth. They were all peers of mine in the computer graphics and Internet development fields in the decades past. But, there were <a href="https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2015/02/brian-mcclendon-gone-whats-next-google.html">many concerns</a> when they left.</p>
<p>I tested most versions of Google Earth over the 12 years, and gave many suggestions from both myself, and GEB readers. Google often listened and implemented many of the requests. Fortunately, a little over two years ago an effort to revive development efforts at Google for Google Earth was made, and a next generation version began development with a smaller staff.</p>
<p>Google as a corporation has changed, and, as often happens with publicly traded companies, their priorities with how they manage their products and relations with outside parties has changed. While they still cater to the big online and traditional news sources and pubications, their attention seems to have shifted away from standalone fan sites like GEB. Our blog is not the only fan site that has experienced this. Blogs like Google Maps Mania, for example, changed their focus and became just &#8220;Maps Mania&#8221; &#8211; a multi-product online mapping focused blog instead several years ago.</p>
<p>As Google eliminated most of the software developer hooks into Google Earth, most of the mapping developers have stopped, or greatly reduced, efforts related to Google Earth as a tool. The elimination early this year of support for the Google Earth plugin was the nail in the GE developer coffin &#8211; at least for now. The <a href="https://googleearthcommunity.proboards.com/">Google Earth Community forums</a>, which once thrived with over a million members, has also dwindled in activity. It was the home of the biggest fans of Google Earth.</p>
<p>The new Chrome-based/and mobile app, version 9 of Google Earth, is the basis of the next generation future from Google. It was released in late April of this year. The new development team, headed by long-time Google Earth developer Sean Askay, has grand plans to implement many of the basic capabilities of the classic pre-version-9 Google Earth applications. As a first release, it shows great promise in terms of graphics performance and its ability to run well in the browser or on a mobile device. But, the web and mobile app version 9 only supports a subset of the Google Earth content, and is missing many of its better features. But, Google has committed to continuing support for the older version while they work on implementing more capabilities in the new generation. They have even recently added some nice tweaks to how the desktop graphics perform on version 7.3 of Google Earth. However, they demoted the better, desktop version, of GE to a link called &#8220;<strong>older versions</strong>&#8221; with the release of the first version 9 on the <a href="https://earth.google.com/">Google Earth official web home page</a>.</p>
<p>In recent months, the new version 9 development team has presumably listened to feedback from GEB and its readers and either implemented, or indicated they will address, some of the requests and suggestions. But, responsiveness and feedback has mostly been slower and more cryptic compared to the past. Much feedback went without reply. In part, I think due to smaller staff, but also I think because Google has changed as a corporation and how it communicates publicly, and even privately, with testers. Their priorities with dealing with the public, and fans of their product, have changed. So much so, that the fun and joy of dealing with Google has disappeared. At least for me.</p>
<p>I realize all too well that many of the people who were die-hard fans of Google Earth 10 years ago, are no longer the fans of the product they once were. Many people have told me they can&#8217;t believe I have held on so long. As a long time entrepreneur, former CEO of multiple companies, captain of the seas and air, I am more persistent than most. Believe me, you have no idea. I have tried extremely hard to keep Google supporting Google Earth and its fans over the years.</p>
<p>In a rare occurrence in my life: I give up.</p>
<p>Maybe Google will one day again realize that their fans are important to the longevity of their products.</p>
<p>But, now that I&#8217;ve reached this decision, I want to turn my eyes to more optimistic pursuits for myself.</p>
