Google Earth Enterprise is comprised of two distinct software packages that work together to build and host your private Google Earth and Google Maps layers. End users then view the complete Google Earth and Maps in the Google Earth Enterprise Client or in a browser like Google Maps.
- Google Earth Enterprise Fusion combines all of your imagery, terrain, KML, and vector data into a Google Earth globe or a Google Map.
- Google Earth Enterprise Server Software allows you to host your private or public globe or map for your users to access via Google Earth client or a Google Maps browser.
- Google Earth Enterprise Client is like the familiar Google Earth client – with more than 700 million downloads worldwide – but offers your users an easier way to view geospatial data over traditional desktop GIS software.
- Google Earth API gives your users the best of both worlds - allowing them to easily view your organization's data within a custom browser experience created by your developers.
Google technology for your geospatial data
Google Earth Enterprise uses similar processing and serving infrastructure that's used at Google to build and serve Google Earth and Google Maps to millions of users and brings it to your organization's data, allowing rapid and secure viewing. Web-based maps mashups can be easily built with your data through Google Earth Enterprise and data is securely viewable and accessible through the Google Earth Enterprise client or through a browser using the Google Earth or Google Maps API.
