Google Earth Alternatives

    Google Earth is described as 'lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean' and is one of the leading apps in the Travel & Location category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Google Earth for a variety of platforms, including the Web, Windows, Android, iPhone and iPad. The best alternative is OpenStreetMap, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Google Earth are OsmAnd (Freemium, Open Source), HERE WeGo (Free), Marble (Free, Open Source) and NASA World Wind (Free, Open Source).

    The list of alternatives was last updated Dec 20, 2020
