Google Earth 5.0

When speaking of innovation and cutting edge technology, it’s hard to find a company that comes to mind before Google. Ok, maybe Apple, but that’s about it ;-)

Google has just released their new version of Google Earth which is in beta. You can download a copy and view the virtual tour by clicking here.

So, what’s new in this version, and makes it perhaps the greatest update GE has ever seen? How about these 3 new features: historical images (think Time Machine, the movie not the Apple App), Ocean Floor (just a matter of time for this one, make sure to check out the Jacque Cousteau tour), and touring w/ audio/voice recording!!!

These new features among the current ones, make Google Earth a unique experience and a great resource to use in education. To view some other things that you can do in GE such as virtual ROME (gladiator days), Disney World, etc check out my Google page by clicking here.
