Yes Sir I have used Google Earth and it is indeed very useful.When you first load GE you have a wealth of information available at your fingertips. Thousands of aerial and satellite photos, dozens of layers of information: city names, country borders, airport locations, photos, road maps, National Geographic content, volcanoes, and more.

I use both google earth & wikimapia. G-earth is a good tool, however, I;ve seen many maps are not updated. I saw a friend's home in Chennai, pinpointed the location precisely, but there is no appartment complex in G-earth screen, only a barren plot of green land.

But for locating most major landmarks and just exploring cities, G-earth is great! I mean where else can u see what's cooking over @ North Korea sitting in Palakkad?

Ok to some extent. Wait for ISRO's Bhuwan which will give much better resolution and utility.
