What was Google Earth introduced?

This has been in the works for a while now, and people have absolutely put this software on a different level, as it allows them to literally explore a virtual 3D earth, and all the places it contains, anytime and anywhere you want.

Google has been collaborating with satellites, on-ground support, and individual contributors to supply high-quality images of locations all around the world, and every month, a list of locations are upgraded to reflect any new changes that may have taken place, in terms of terrain or establishment of new buildings or spots of interest. This list of locations is pre-decided by Google, so there is no point holding out hope for your hometown getting an upgrade as it will only get the change when Google receives significant footage that reflects changes to that location.
