Now You Can Measure Distance and Area from Google Earth

These Days Google maps offer everything that a typical user would require, but Google continues to develop the mostly forgotten software, the Google Earth. The Company announced that it is adding an area measurement tool to the Google Earth service and by the end of the week it will come to android too and for iOS, it will be coming soon.


The measurement tool is not one of the notable new features that Google has introduced. After keeping in mind that you have long been able to measure distance with a virtual ruler in Google Maps, too. But the addition of a feature for measuring area seems useful, especially for students and researchers.

But there is one question that is ringing in my head that why is Google adding an area measurement tool to Earth, but not to Maps? And anyways Google Earth has features that Maps don’t even offer.
