The Earth Is getting Smaller
If you haven’t done so yet I can thoroughly recommend a trip to Google Earth to download and play with the internet giant’s latest offering.
“Google Earth – Explore, Search and Discover
Want to know more about a specific location? Dive right in — Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips.
- Fly from space to your neighborhood. Type in an address and zoom right in.
- Search for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Get driving directions.
- Tilt and rotate the view to see 3D terrain and buildings.
- Save and share your searches and favorites. Even add your own annotations.
What’s really cool is that you can fly in from outer space and zoom right on in on your own house and then fly right back out again. The world is getting smaller.
