    • 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.

    • Google fully integrated its Street View into Google Earth.
    • Google Street View provides 360° panoramic street-level views and allows users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas at ground level.
    • Google Street View, when operated, displays photos that were previously taken by a camera, and can be navigated by using the mouse to click on photograph icons displayed on the screen in your direction of travel.

    • Flight simulator
    • a flight simulator has been included as a hidden feature.
    • Depending on the system, it can be accessed by pressing Control+Alt+A,
    • After this feature has been activated at least once it appears under the tools menu. the option is hidden by default. Currently the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the Cirrus SR-22 are the only aircraft that can be used, in addition to a few airports.
