Google Earth tab does not show

Google Earth tab no longer appears in ERDAS IMAGINE ribbon after Google Earth version is installed.


If an older version of Google Earth (for example, version is installed, the Google Earth tab displays in ERDAS IMAGINE as it should.




You can still access the Google Earth tools by searching for them under the Help tab or you can use the Customize Ribbon tool to create a new custom Google Earth tab and add all of the same Google Earth commands to it. The Customize Ribbon tool can be accessed under the File tab > Layout > Customize Layout.


Please review the attached document IMAGINE Ribbon Google Earth.pdf for detailed instructions to create a new custom Google Earth tab.


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 or earlier. The installers for version of Google Earth and Google Earth Pro can be downloaded from the links below.


Google Earth v7.1.5.1557 (baseline version)

Google Earth Pro v7.1.5.1557

With the upcoming release i.e., ERDAS IMAGINE 2018, this has been resolved and the Google tab would show up automatically with the latest versions of Google Earth.
