Google Earth 6.0

Monday, November 29, 2010

Google has come up with the annoucement of Google earth 6.0. what's new about GE6 now? well it has come up with integrated street view experience and 3D trees. 3D trees???? sounds strange ha.. come lets check it out...

First of all, let me know you guys what is "integrated street view". Using this feature you can directly move upto your doorstep vitually. Now here comes the concept which i was imagining when i first heard about Google earth. The concept is, there is a pegman whom you can pick and drop along the highlighted roadways ... and you can use the navigation controls or your mouse to look around.

And unlike the earlier Street View layer, you can now move seamlessly from one location to another as if you’re walking down the street by using the scroll-wheel on your mouse or the arrow keys on your keyboard. If you want to visit somewhere farther away, simply click the “exit” button and you’ll immediately return to an aerial view where you can easily fly to your next destination. Wow this is just like a 3D video Game.

Then comes another feature "3D trees". Google Earth 6 includes 3D models for dozens of species of trees, from the Japanese Maple to the East African Cordia to the cacao tree.

Google says: "While we’ve just gotten started planting trees in Google Earth, we already have more than 80 million trees in places such as Athens, Berlin, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and Tokyo. Through our Google Earth Outreach programme, we’ve also been working with organisations including the Green Belt Movement in Africa, the Amazon Conservation Team in Brazil and CONABIO in Mexico to model our planet’s threatened forests."

There is also feature incorporated with GE6 which is useful in viewing Historical images. while moving on the screen in GE6 and if you come accross any historical image.... then you just click on that image and it gives the oldest date of the image and once you click on the date it will take you to that timeperiod...

Well these are some of the main features of Google Earth 6 ... just try using this and leave me the comments how did u like GE6.
