Why is Aerial Photography Better than Google Earth?
Google Earth is great at giving a vague visualization of the major roads and landmarks that surround a specific property, but it does not give the stunning and eye catching perspective that is achieved through aerial photography. Another consideration is that Google Earth can not even come remotely close to giving the user the clarity and quality of a property that an aerial photo taken with our specialized equipment can. Also, Google Earth does not provide up to date real time images, such as for monitoring construction progress, some of the satellite shots that Google Earth uses are over 6 years old. There are many advantages of aerial photography over old satellite shots, but don't take my word for it, judge for yourself.
Below are some of the exact same areas, but from the two different perspectives:
