Millions of users around the world have used Google Earth to 'fly' around the world and check out everything from Buckingham Palace to their childhood homes.

Believe it or not, Google Earth isn't just for individual exploration of the world. A growing number of companies and government agencies have been using Google Earth's Enterprise solutions to layer their data onto the globe. Energy companies have been particularly enthusiastic in adopting Google Earth Enterprise. With huge amounts of exploration imagery and the need to manage oil rigs, pipelines, equipment etc. all over the world, the energy industry is a natural fit for Google Earth Enterprise.

That is why we are pleased to announce that Spatial Energy has joined the Google Enterprise Professional program as a Google Earth Specialist. Spatial Energy has extensive experience providing imagery solutions to the oil and gas industry, so we are excited to work with them to extend the reach of Google Earth to more oil and gas companies.
