New Google Earth Site

Google Earth Gets a New and Improved Website

Google Earth has allowed you to explore the oceans, watch the sunrise, and even track Santa Claus's yearly flight, and now it has a new look.

Google Earth 5, available for download now, includes photos, videos, tours, and maps, all wrapped up in a brand-new site. According to Google, the new Google Earth has five main areas of improvement; find out what they are after the break.

  • Featured content areas showcase the moon, oceans, notable buildings (in 3D!), and more.
  • Video tutorials that teach you everything from how to get started using the site to how to create placemarks, record a tour, or import GPS data.
  • Compatibility with Google Maps and Google Earth apps for your phone for a complete user experience.
  • Forums to create a feeling of community on the site, plus improved newsletters, blog posts, and social networking to help you stay connected.
  • New, special pages created for teachers, media, businesses, and more to take full advantage of all Google Earth functionality.
