Para volar a cualquier lugar del mundo y hacer zoom.... impresionante.



Google Earth allows you to view global imagery and other geographic information right on your desktop. Just type in the address or location, and watch the interactive 3D navigate to that location, zooming in to street level (you can actually see cars on the street). Along with the detailed satellite images, you can pan and zoom, mark locations, and activate layers that show points of interests like banks, schools, restaurants shopping areas and much more. In addition to the standard satellite view, Google Earth also includes a tilt feature that allows you to render the map in a realistic 3D perspective that shows elevations levels. Additional features include on-screen measuring, emailing and printing of map views, personal places and more.

Requires 3D graphics card: 3D-capable video card with 16MB VRAM, high speed connection

¡Asombroso! Aug 7, 2005

En una época en la que es cada vez más difícil asombrarse, Google Earth nos dejó con la boca abierta. Es como mágico. Elevarse hasta ver la esfericidad del planeta y luego acercarse hasta ver el edificio en el que trabajo, o la casa de un amigo, o una apacible casita a la vera de un fiordo noruego.

¡Y la posibilidad de ver en vivo las imágenes de Webcams incorporadas a los mapas, y tantas cosas que aún no habremos descubierto!

Isn't it great? Aug 7, 2005

Hi Gaby, I posted the same information on July 31st. I had just discovered google earth in Time magazine. I was surprised to see that not many people looked it up. The ones who did, were just as amazed as I was. I've found so many places that I've been to, it's really adictive!
Saludos

Sí Teju, por aquí todos hablan de ello y la verdad, me parece una cosa increíble... muy bien tomada por los satélites en sus detalles tenemos a Bagdad (ejem), pero y tantas cosas... las pirámides, ... recovecos varios, y como dice Quique también casitas (ya ubiqué mi casa); es realmente un jueguito, pero es - nuestra Tierra! Me parece maravilloso. 2-2-tango, teju, gracias por compartir compartir la emoción.

Pronto la versión completa será barata, de distribución en masa, y vamos a poder saludarnos on line ;-D
