Mountain View-based search engine giant Google has announced that the development process of Google Earth Enterprise (GEE) has reached another important milestone. To be more precise, Google announced the release of Google Earth Enterprise version 4.0. Businesses that can benefit from the functionality of this application can now download it. Existing customers can find GEE 4.0 upgrade information by logging into the Google Enterprise Support Portal.

Before you go get Google Earth Enterprise 4.0, perhaps you would like to know what GEE has to offer. Here’s the lowdown:


Updated Android Google Earth client

The updated Android Google Earth client in GEE 4.0 comes with support for direct connections to customers’ globes. This means users have mobile access to your businesses’ globes.

Offline access to Google Earth Enterprise
If you don’t have internet access, you can download a part of a map and access it offline. Dylan Lorimer, Google Earth and Maps Product Manager, explains: “Many of our GEE customers need to provide their end users with access to geospatial data for situational awareness, even when those users are in environments with limited or no Internet connectivity. To support this, GEE 4.0 introduces a new feature that permits authenticated end users to extract portions of a published GEE globe -- including all imagery, terrain, vectors, KMLs, and search -- and serve the data locally from their own laptops or other storage devices using a native, cross-platform, light-weight Portable Earth System.”

Google Earth 5.2 client support
The new Google Earth 5.2 client comes with some great new features, like elevation profiles, native MGRS support, client-side data regionation, and a new embedded web browser. GEE 4.0 comes with full support for Google Earth 5.2 client.

Google Earth Plugin enhancements

Google Earth Plugin in GEE 4.0 comes with support for historical imagery databases and the ability to connect to multiple globes simultaneously.
