During the webcast Google showed off Google Earth – a combination of Keyhole and Google Maps. Everyone knew this was going to happen, I didn’t think it would look so cool. Google Earth has a huge “wow” factor.
Couple highlights from the webcast:
- Zooming out on the Earth
- Google Earth visually tracks your driving route
- Zoom in and out
- Overlay directions
- Similar search function (they search for “five star hotels” in the webcast)
