    • Google Earth supports managing three-dimensional Geospatial data through Keyhole Markup Language (KML).
    • Google Earth has the capability to show 3D buildings and structures (such as bridges), which consist of users' submissions using SketchUp, a 3D modeling program.
    • Google added a feature that allow users to monitor traffic speeds at loops located every 200 yards in real-time.
    • Google Street View was fully integrated into the program allowing the program to provide an on the street level view in many locations.
