GEScene is a MapInfo utility that allows images to be exchanged in both directions between MapInfo and Google Earth. Placemarks can also be created in Google Earth by using MapInfo as a point of reference to easily pinpoint more obscure locations. Images saved in Google Earth can be registered and displayed in MapInfo to compliment existing map layers. Conversely, the contents of any MapInfo map window can be displayed in Google Earth as an image overly. Google Earth is a great application for viewing data in the real world, but is limited in its ability to display, edit and locate data from external sources. MapInfo on the other hand, is very good at displaying, editing and locating data from many different sources, but lacks the visual impact provided by Google Earth. GEScene helps compliment the features of both these applications by allowing more flexibility when displaying and analyzing data.
