Updated version of Google Earth
I've just downloaded the latest version of Google Earth and spent an hour roaming the new features. There is so much here for the classroom - check it out!
It would be a good idea to also check out the help site which gives you information about how to get the best out of the programme.
New Features in Version 5.0
This version of Google Earth has a number of exciting new features, including:
* Ocean - Fly and navigate under the ocean and explore underwater terrain. You can also display the ocean surface.
* Touring - Record, play and share custom tours that capture your actions and movements in Google Earth.
* Historical imagery - Explore images of the recent and not-so-recent past.
* Mars - View imagery and terrain of the red planet.
