Google Earth 6 Launched

Google has announced the launch of Google Earth 6. This new version provides a well integrated street view, 3D trees and easier way to access historical imagery. Now Pegman icon is integrated into the navigation controls. It is possible to just drag Pegman to the street which is to be viewed (blue borders will instantly appear around streets having street view imagery available). Currently 3D trees are modeled for select city parks, neighborhoods and forests around the world. This number would increase in future to cover more. 3D tree view provides a enriching experience as soon as one flies down to the ground level of area/forest with 3D buildings layer enabled.  More than 50 different species of trees can be identified all over the world.




This latest version of Google Earth is available for Linux, Mac and Windows at http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/
