Download Topographic Maps Using Google Earth Pro 2021

Maps are extremely useful to Earth scientists to represent geographic features. So, what is a Topographic Map? 
Mapping is a crucial part of Earth science. Topographic maps represent the locations of geographical features (hills, valleys, elevation...). Topographic maps use contour lines to show different elevations on a map. A contour line is a type of isoline; in this case, a line of equal elevation. 
The following video shows how to download Topographic Maps from Google Earth. 
For download you need to: 
Download Google Earth Pro -> Download, 
Download a free Kmz file “US_Army_maps_v_17.kmz” -> Download. 
Then, open Kmz “US_Army_maps_v_17.kmz” file in Google Earth: you will get a grid of topographic maps locations to search the desired map cell and use the link to download the Topographic map.
