In a way, it blows Terraserver out of the water in some respects. The pros and the cons are about the same from both though.

Terraserver

Pros:
1.) Excellent quality photos
2.) Entire nation is covered with resolution up to 1 meter (some images are even closer)

Cons:
1.) only covers US
2.) time delay during images

Google Earth

Pros:
1.) Covers the entire world
2.) Tilt feature allows looking at elevations
3.) More accurate search engine
4.) Resolution is fantastic (in places)
5.) Images are streaming from a server
6.) System is program based on the user's computer

Cons:
1.) High Res areas don't cover too many areas
2.) Not all services are free.
