Google Earth used by 200 million people

Posted on Saturday, June 09 2007 @ 11:20:38 CEST by


Earlier this week Google's CTO of geography software Michael Jones revealed that more than 200 million people have downloaded the Google Earth software.
That's just under the population of Indonesia at roughly 233 million and the United States at just more than 301 million. Brazil's population falls short of Google Earth users with 188 million residents.

Jones said that Google Earth, which launched two years ago, has also drawn more installations than Microsoft's Windows XP.

"That attracts attention," Jones said to an audience at the five-day conference, held on the U.C. Berkeley campus. He specifically referred to positive mentions of Google Earth among top government officials such as French President Jacques Chirac and even Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Jones highlighted a quote from President Bush about the mapping software.

Bush has said: "I kind of like to look at the ranch on Google, reminds me of where I want to be sometimes."
