I have been on this site for about 10 days, but I've had GOOGLE EARTH for over two months. This site is unreal and these are some things I found out.
Degrees north and south, east, west to the sec.
Look for any place on earth if theres such a place and you spell it right.
It will tell you the height of a mountain or the debth of a canyon next to it.
It will tell you inches, feet, yards, miles and so-on, also in metrics.
It will tell you the distances between two points of interest.
I am still learning more every time I go there. I don't know much but i'll give an information I have.

I love Google Earth for looking a various well known places around the world, but I find it useless in the Superstitions. There are a lot of places (like the Superstitions ) where they have the graphics limited to low resolution photos. As long as you stay out of those areas it's fine tho.
Not all cities are covered in high resolution (where you can see individual buildings and cars) detail. We have more imagery of the United States than other countries currently. And because the imagery comes from a variety of sources, and is mosaic-ed together, it is difficult for us to specify the date of a city or region (a single city may have imagery taken from different months). We are adding high resolution coverage continually, but we are not able to tell you when a specific area will be covered. The best way to find out if your area of interest is covered is to download the free version of Google Earth and check it out for yourself (Google Earth, Google Earth Plus, and Google Earth Pro share access to the same database).
