    Greetings,

    I am looking to purchase some land and considering tropical and lush islands. I figured I would start my work by surveying lands online (VIA topographical maps), to make it easier to find exactly what I am wanting in a property. What are your reviews for existing map services? Are there any free map services? If any of you are experienced with such searches and could lend some advice, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CONTACT ME.

    Thank you!

    Hi Belle and welcome,
    Have you seen this bit? http://www.outdoors.org/articles/amc-outdoors/how-to-add-usgs-topographic-maps-to-google-earth/
    while the article is about adding topo maps for the US, I also noted that a world topo database is included in the arcgisonline web folder and should work with Google Earth just fine: http://services.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services
    Google Earth Pro is now free and your best option: https://www.google.com/earth/download/gep/agree.html
    If you try this, let us know how it works for you!
