What's coming up
Now that you've mastered the basics and know how to find things in Google Earth, it's time to learn a few extra tricks.
In this activity, you'll learn about saving bookmarks, adding extra detail to maps and even exploring beyond the Earth.Start activity
Bookmark and save
Bookmarking favourite locations in Google Earth makes it quick and easy to visit them in the future. Simply click the My Places icon in the main control menu to add your location.
Share somewhere you’ve found
There's also a Share option which makes it easy to send a location from Google Earth to someone or to post it on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter.
Become an armchair tourist
Google Earth can take you to the most remote corners of the world, from the scorching hot Gobi Desert to sub-zero temperatures at Antarctica's Mawson Station. Meanwhile, Street View can even take you under the oceans and even along rivers.
Use Google Earth on the go
Remember, when you're exploring Google Earth you're not limited to desktop and laptop computers. Apart from PCs and Macs, you can also use Google Earth on smartphones as well as tablets. You'll find Google Earth for free in the Google Play for Android devices and the App Store for Apple devices.
Go for the big screen
Of course, Google Earth naturally looks best on a large computer screen. Not only can see a lot more detail, it's also easier to explore the maps and see what's in the surrounding area.
Taking advantage of a large monitor also makes it easier to use the onscreen controls.
