Applying for Google Earth Pro:

Qualifications - Google-Keyhole Education Initiative

(June 28, 2005)*

The Program – in two phases:

The Google-Keyhole Education Initiative, in phase one, involves outreach, culminating in the release of a free version of Google Earth on June 28, 2005. Phase one also will provide for the wide distribution of Google Earth PRO (advanced version of Keyhole) to qualified educators, in exchange for their encouraged (but voluntary) participation in phase two. These combined steps, by Google, will provide free access to the Keyhole servers and data bases for students as well as for their teachers, and will foster incentives for creativity and innovation in phase two.

The second phase will involve a transition to applications of Keyhole technology in curriculum development, and will include a wide variety of alliances among the participants, facilitated by the Keyhole Community bbs.keyhole.com as a forum for educators seeking ideas and collaborative opportunities with their peers, for the benefit of their students.

Eligibility for Google Earth PRO:

In the first phase, all professional educators affiliated with (employed by) lower, middle, and upper schools; accredited community and four year colleges, universities and graduate schools; selected vocational training programs; certain education oriented NGOs, public access museums and libraries are eligible to receive one free annual license for Google Earth PRO.

Free PRO license application procedure:

To apply for your free license, sign up for a PRO trial license KEY. Go to our PRO web page www.keyhole.com/body.p...eyhole2Pro and download a trial subscription. Your license will be extended for one year upon receipt of acknowledgement of the license KEY and responses to items 1 through 4 below.

Administrative support:

Your institution’s tax ID and 501C(3)numbers should be provided to Sue Cozzo (scozzo@google.com) upon completion of the transaction, along with an ink-on-paper donation acknowledgement from the institution receiving Keyhole, for tax purposes, and sent by regular mail to Sue Cozzo, Google, Building 41, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. Customer support is available at prouser @ google.com or 1-866-755-2582.


Additional licenses can be purchased at $300 for PRO and $20 for LT. Premium modules (movie maker, hi-res printing, data import) can be purchased at $200 each or $400 for a bundle of three. (see web site: www.earth.google.com)

Information required:

Please complete the processing by forwarding to me (den@google.com):

1. The e-mail address (log in) that will be used in connection with the Keyhole account.

2. A brief description of the academic institution where keyhole will be installed (URL included). The license may be installed on two computers.

3. Name, title and contact information of the principle faculty member or administrator in charge of the Keyhole license.

4. A brief description of the intended applications of Keyhole, including grade level(s), discipline(s) or subject

We are pleased to provide you with access to Google Earth and look forward to working with you in the second phase of our initiative, where we will call upon you to assist in the further development of useful applications.

*This announcement (June 28, 2005) supersedes all previous announcements of the Google-Keyhole Initiative.
