Google Earth at UCAR
Google Outreach granted UCAR a number of Google Earth Pro licenses for use by UCAR staff from 2010-2011 but has discontinued our grant due to NCAR's status as an FFRDC. If you need the additional features of Google Earth Pro, such as video recording, higher resolution printing, and advanced import/export, please contact Google Earth Pro Sales to purchase a license key. Otherwise, you can simply download the freely available Google Earth which doesn't require a license key.
