Google Earth 5.0 goes Under the Sea, to Mars, & Back in Time
Google Earth has just launched "Google Earth 5.0", a wonderful new ocean program said to eventually document the entire ocean floor. It also features historical images and incredible details of Mars.
Google has assembled a coalition of more than 80 organizations, including the National Geographic Society, the Marine Conservation Society, the U.S. Navy, NASA, BBC and Canada's Shipwreck Central to provide images, video and analysis in regularly-updated information added to Google's basic mapping technology.
Users will be able to track the migratory paths of animals in the sea, view shipwrecks, environmental changes, even view the surface of Mars on this new add-on.
"With this latest version of Google Earth, you can not only zoom into whatever part of our planet's surface you wish to examine in closer detail, you can now dive into the world's oceans that cover almost three quarters of the planet and discover new wonders that had not been accessible in previous versions of this magical experience," said the former American vice-president, Al Gore, at the launch of the new version of Google Earth in San Francisco.
