Why doesn't Google Earth functionality work in ERDAS IMAGINE 2016?
Google Earth has to be manually launched and kept open along with ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 in order for the Google Earth functionalities with ERDAS IMAGINE to work.
The latest versions of Google Earth will not connect to ERDAS IMAGINE. Installing an earlier version of baseline Google Earth will solve this problem. Please try using Google Earth version 184.108.40.2067 or earlier. The installers for version 220.127.116.117 of Google Earth and Google Earth Pro can be downloaded from the links below.
