New Changes to Earth Pro

Hello Google Earth Pro user,


We wanted to inform you that the Terms of Service (TOS) for Google Earth Pro are being updated. Customers with active licenses will continue to be governed by the current GEP terms until the end of your active license term. After such date, your continued use of GEP will be subject to the newly updated Google Earth TOS, with “Google” in the TOS referring to “Google Ireland Limited” for EMEA customers and “Google Asia Pacific Pte Ltd” for APAC customers. For more details, please refer to the email below that was sent in June 2015.


Support Changes

We will continue to offer you technical support through the remainder of your current GEP license term. Afterwards, support will be offered via this Google Maps forum, a user-to-user help platform.


Can I continue to use my License Key?

Existing Earth Pro keys will not expire and will continue to work for free, even after your existing license term is over. While new Earth Pro keys are no longer being generated, you can instead use your email address and the key GEPFREE to sign in once you download the software here.


Earth Pro Product Changes:

The following three layers and Parcel (APN) Search feature will be removed from Google Earth Pro on January 29, 2016:

  • U.S. Demographics

  • U.S. Parcels Data

  • U.S. Daily Traffic Counts


Sincerely,
The Google Earth Team

What alternatives are available for Google Earth Pro that can add back the parcel lines/data?

If you search http://catalog.data.gov/dataset there are parcel datasets for many states/counties available for free. Filter on geospatial as dataset type then search for word "parcel". You can also further filter on location for a particular area.

If you cannot find what you're looking for on the free sites then there are also commercial sites you can purchase what you need.

For example, Report All website has a large data archive of parcel data per state/county (some states and counties are not included). You can purchase data per county via shapefile, kml, or excel. For a county, you can order data for individual parcels at $1.99 each or the entire county for $400.

Hope that helps.

Is there a way to purchase a plug in so that the APN and 3 layers will continue to exist?

I'm sick about this. Why is Google doing this?  I'm happy to continue to pay a license fee to get the parcel data. $400 a year is cheap. I'm finding sources that want $400 a month for a single county.  I can't afford that.  What's really happening here?

Why can't I see country borders on Chrome PC although I'm on Everything for Map Style? Only the country/subdivision names show up, not the borders!
