    NOT considering the price, which app do you like more? google earth or earthscape..

    both are virtual globe apps with pan view and "real" view, along with 3D topography. they both have wikipedia links and images. pretty much the same. or not...?

    Google Earth's images are years out of date; they show my house before I had it renovated 6 years ago.

    well not all the images are from the same time - they just have a satellite (probably a few) going around the world taking photos. its pretty hard to stay up to date.

    True. But 6 years is a little sad.

    I do love Google Earth; it was my number one time waster in school. Even though the images aren't current, I still enjoy flying around the earth as fast as I can.

    Google Earth loads faster and crashes less than Earthscape, for the record.

    And they're both Free actually. So... Why not have both? But I'd say Google, since, well, its Google. They started the project of mapping the planet, they have the resources. I doubt the developers of Earthscape do.
