Earth Studio is a web-based animation tool for Google Earth imagery. Google Earth has a massive store of satellite and aerial (3D) imagery from large-scale geological features to individual city buildings. Earth Studio is the easiest way to leverage this imagery for still and animated content.
Earth Studio and Google Earth serve different purposes. Google Earth enables you to travel and learn about the world through a virtual globe. You can view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings and much more. Earth Studio, on the other hand, is a tool for animating geospatial information to create still and video content. They both share the same imagery dataset and use the same 3D rendering engine but have different features.
