    6. 6. Google Earth in the news Whole Planet Access Google Earth LT Looking for the ultimate map? Google Earth’s part street map, part aerial and satellite photos, is available as a subscription service (with free evaluation) delivered to your PC via the Internet. In effect, the EarthViewer3D client gives you control of your own personal satellite in orbit. It instantly delivers a (not-live) satellite or aerial photo of most points you specify on the globe; enter a street address and your view zooms from a space-station perspective down to street level. We still craved more, however: You get street-level detail only for major world cities and certain hot spots (such as Kabul and Baghdad), betraying Google Earth's spy satellite heritage.
