Diagnosis

Solution

To establish a successful ERDAS IMAGINE connection to Google Earth Pro, the baseline Google Earth application must be also installed.

 

  • Close Google Earth Pro.
  • Install baseline Google Earth, but do not start it.
  • Start Google Earth Pro.
  • Click the Connect to Google Earth button in ERDAS IMAGINE.

 

The latest versions of Google Earth may not connect to ERDAS IMAGINE. Installing an earlier version of baseline Google Earth will solve this problem. Please try using Google Earth version 7.1.5.1557 or earlier. The installers for version 7.1.5.1557 of Google Earth and Google Earth Pro can be downloaded from the links below.

 

Google Earth v7.1.5.1557

Google Earth Pro v7.1.5.1557

With the upcoming release i.e., ERDAS IMAGINE 2018, and Google Earth Pro v7.3.x this has been resolved.
