Google used to charge $399/year for their Google Earth Pro service. If you are a Google Earth user then there are some good and exciting news for you: The Pro version of the service is now available for free. This means that you can “feast” on detailed imagery and use the advanced tools that help you print high resolution images, record HD movies of your virtual flights and measure 3D buildings — all for $0.00 (FREE)!

“Starting today, even more people will be able to access Google Earth Pro: we’re making it available for free,” Google said in a blog post.

To give the Pro version of Google Earth a try, simply grab a free key and download Earth Pro. Existing users will not be required to change anything. Their keys will continue to work.
