Canarian Google Earth is now at the fingertips of anyone with access to the internet. It is a high tech database containing information about the geography of the Canary Islands.

The system allows users enter the name of an hotel, Government building, or an address, to view the images. You can see a map of the location, or obtain information on the area. You can zoom into an individual property to a lay-over street map of roads. Ideal if you are looking to purchase a property.

You will find the system works well using Microsoft Internet Explorer, but it will not work using Firefox. It is all in Spanish, but it’s not difficult to work out what everything does.
