Google Earth 7
Explore the world in which we life with Google Earth

Google Earth enables you to travel the world from the comfort of your desktop, exploring stunning satellite imagery in stunning 3D. The fluid interface makes it easy to jump from country to country and zoom right in to street level. Certain key cities around the world benefit from 3D tours which can be used to take a virtual tour of key landmarks and get a feeling of the lay of the land.

You can also search for local businesses and places of interest, and the pinpointing tools mean that it is possible to bookmark locations on the map and share them with others. This feature can also be used to create virtual sightseeing tours - perhaps to show off the route you have taken on your travels.

While the program is immense fun, it can also be put to more serious uses. A range of different maps can be displayed, including historical maps which can show how country boundaries have changed over the years. Google Earth can also be used as route planner and to find out valuable information about towns, cities and country you plan to visit. Additional components are available that can be used to take virtual tour of the sky, moon and sun and the way in which users are invited to generate their own content to add to maps means that there is always something new to find.

Google Earth 7.1.8 is a minor upgrade. Changes include:

Verdict:

An educational tool which is also a great deal of fun, Google Earth bring geography to life.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
