I have been using Google Earth, since before it was called Google Earth. Back then it was known as KeyHole. I use Google Earth at work to look up buildings we manage or are looking at managing. It is an amazing system and if your computer is less than a few years old then it should run fine. There is a free version for now, so there is no reason not to download and try it out. Oh, it gives directions and finds places for you as well using the Google search engine.
