Using Planet GeoTIFFs in Google Earth Pro on Desktop

Both Planets’ analytic and visual scenes can be used in Google Earth Pro on Desktop. You can add Planets’ GeoTIFF by dragging them to map window and Google Earth Pro will asked how do you want to overlay the image.

  • Create Super Overlay: This will convert GeoTIFF into a group of smaller KMZ files and a KML file to view at full-resolution. Make sure you create or select an empty folder to put all generated files.
  • Scale: This will overlay the full image but rescaled at the maximum supported size.
  • Crop: This will cropped the image to a subset at full-resolution.

Once you overlayed the imagery on Google Earth Pro, you can draped it over existing Google Earth terrain model by activating Terrain on layer panel.
