This is a VBA simple tool (really short) that integrate ArcMap with Google Earth.
Add whatever data you want in ArcMap and then activate the tool. The Tool will open a new internet explorer Page With a Google earth plug in.
Now just browse your data in ArcMap (Zoom, Pan etc) You will see that it is reflected on Google Earth.
Why this is useful? You don't need to overwhelm your ArcMap with satellite images, you have a live source of satellite images up-to-date from Google Earth as you browse your data.
Read the Readme file for the steps of the installation.
One more thing,
The webpage with Google Earth is on the test folder, You will need to change the path to fit you machine
m_pIE.navigate2 "file://C:\Documents and Settings\ncs\Desktop\test\Ge.htm"
Hope it will be helpful :)
