Google Earth Now in Google Chrome

Google just announced today that Google Earth is web-based in Google Chrome.  You no longer have to install the software to run it.  It also includes some cool new features I've shared below.

  1. Voyager- Showcase of interactive guided tours.  Try this one of National Parks.
  2. "I'm feeling lucky" Button- feature to be automatically directed to 1 of 20, 000 different places. (captain's will)
  3. 3D Button- experience locations as if you were standing there- Tower of London
What activities do you see your students completing using this great tool?
