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.

Fair Use Policy

Google Earth and Google Earth Pro have a fair use policy that covers many academic uses. Please consult this page before publishing screenshots of your data in Google Earth or Google Earth Pro.

  1. Having GE Pro adds another level of usability and convenience to our utilization of GE. Being able to save paths, calculate lengths and areas of polygons are extremely useful abilities that we will start using immediately.

    I am already using saved paths for planning the next set of field experiments such as TORERO and HIPPO-Global Phases 3,4 and 5.

    At first GE Pro froze on my W-7 x64 machine and then conflicted apparently with GE non-Pro but all of a sudden this went away. Some issue must have been addressed in a W-7 patch.

    I will be uploading several KMLs that I use for real time flight support that our University users all over the world found useful.
