Anybody who likes to plan & visualise their routes (& anybody who just likes looking at places from above!) may be interested in this free piece of software. Don’t let the fact that it is free put you off, it has just had a major upgrade & now features better vegetation, accurate roads, rivers & lakes.
Thanks, I’ll give it a try. Currently I use Litchi to plan routes, export the *.kml to Google Earth running in 3d mode and use it to check camera angles and altitudes.
That’s what I do.
You can even “fly” where not permitted.
