Google Earth

Category: Interesting Links,Technology — Posted by Michael at 1345

Everyone knows that Google is the best site to use for searching, but Google is slowly becoming a huge company that offers a wide array of services. the coolest new one that I’ve seen recently is Google Earth. It’s not web-based, but is an application you can download and install. If you’ve used Google Maps, you already know that Google bought out Keyhole and now has satellite imagery available. Google Earth takes this one step farther. In this program you can zoom through maps, and use them in all kinds of ways. It even has 3 dimensional representations of buildings so you can fly through cities.

It’s tough to explain all the useful features, but once you download it it you’ll see how much fun it is to play with even if you don’t have a serious use for it.

Oh yeah, and it’s free. Get it at http://earth.google.com.
