Imagine if you could see the faces of your friends worldwide in Google Earth. That's what Earth Addresser allows you to by exporting Address Book data into Google Earth.

Earth Addresser takes addresses from your Address Book, looks-up their coordinates on the globe and then writes that information in a KML file that Google Earth can read. Google Earth then uses the file to display your friends location on the map along with a photo of them if you've added one to their card in Address Book. This looks far better than just a generic drawing pin.

Earth Addresser exports instantly and is very easy to use allowing you to customize exactly how you search contacts, which details to link them with and even how big to make the photos using a slider. In fact, this latter option is very important because the only problem with Earth Addresser is that with hundreds of friends photo all over the globe, it can start to look very crowded on a zoomed-out shot of the Earth.

Earth Addresser is an excellent tool to link Address Book with Google Earth.
