Match Google Maps To Google Earth

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 4:44 pm

You may have noticed when using Google Earth that you are able to zoom in to a higher level of detail than you can with the online Google Map system. If you are not on your own PC, or are unable to install applications due to work-based restrictions, then there is a trick you can utilize to obtain the same zoom. Check out this post for more details, but basically you just need to extract the URL by copying the link from the ‘Link To This Page’ area in Google Maps. From there, change the value of the ‘Z’ parameter to 20 or higher. This will only work if Google actually has a higher level of detail in their records, obviously.
