Google Earth VR reviews and comments

Translated by

One of the best VR apps. But still alas too incomplete to this day: too few places are actually modeled in 3D. Out of the big Western cities, everything is flat (even the most important places like the pyramids of Giza!). Big flaws also on the water, which spoil most of the sea landscapes. Still a lot of work so before actually being able to visit the entire world virtually. It is still easy to spend hours at (re) visiting large cities and sublime natural landscapes.

Monumental experience. Being able to visit every corner of the Earth in seconds is absolute. Large and medium-sized cities, tourist places, mountain ranges, important places, are modeled in 3D. Revisiting my native village in full 3D is simply jubilatory. Walk on Everest, on Mont Blanc, visit Cape Canaveral and its space facilities. Wow! The whole thing is more instinctive, we control the navigation in a handful of seconds/minutes. And the sound atmosphere adapts perfectly to the place visited: noise of the cities, winds of the peaks, calm of the countryside. Thanks Google for the most beautiful VR experience to date. And free! The points to improve: keep the cards in memory between two sessions, in order to avoid charging everything. And especially incorporate the maps of the Moon and Mars on the same principle!

The VR version of "Google Earth" has been very well implemented. The Operation is simple and user-friendly. A Narrowing Of the sight during Movements prevents the well-known Nausea. So you can fly around to your Heart's content in the virtual Air of the Earth and admire all their beautiful Places, almost as if you were really there. Many Places were also automatically (by Photogrammetry) equipped with 3D models. Thus, you can actually walk between Skyscrapers, walk on Viewing Platforms or look down on Rio from the Christ Redentor statue. If you get too close, the Objects and Textures are, of course, very blurry. On The other hand, it would also be very critical if you could catch yourself in high Resolution in the Program while bathing nude in your own Garden. From 100 Meters Distance, the felt Closeness to Reality is breathtaking and often ensures a strong presence feeling. The Earth is waiting to be explored! Even at the first Place of The tour I was surprised how well one can read the History of the Earth from this height, With this Overview: One can see how huge Slabs of Rock were pushed in and above each other by Tectonics, partly came to lie vertically and for Very characteristic Rock Formations provided, which can never be perceived in this way on the Ground.
