Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Some bright chap at backstage.bbc.co.uk has suggested getting folk (or companies/google) to attach news items on it - with articles placed at the location the event occurred at ( [backstage.bbc.co.uk...] ). So you could zoom in to any part of the world and see the current news items.
Considering you can see the great wall of china from space im amazed that I honestly cant find it in china.
Actually, you can't...
The overlays and stuff on this are great! I've added traffic updates for the Atlanta area, and radar/satellite weather updates for much of the rest of the country.
Time to go back to playing with this thing. :)
The future is near....
someday we'll have adwords search network, content network, car network, home network, street network....we'll be forever spammed with advertising....
I have to say this is the coolest software program I have ever used!
How great would it be for Google Earth to display weather, including hurricanes, in real time on Google Earth... maybe even animate its path.
Wow the possibilites are endless for this great software
Just for the guys at Google plex
I don't seem to be able to run the program on a wireless network
I have DSL wireless router using WPA encryption, when connected directly using RJ45 eithernet cables I have no problems using Google Earth however as soon as I disconnect the cables and use wireless the program fails to log in.
Its not a firewall issue on the router as this has been disabled.
Is their any reason why wireless can effect this? has any one else tried on a secure wireless network?
Nice tool Google!
Hi, I've got a wireless network as well and what I found was I had to disable my Norton Internet Security otherwise it wouldn't work for me at all. Could it be that you too have some sort of Antivirus software running in the background as well?
Now we get the answer, this is the ultimate interface for planning travel - being able to find what you want, where you want, and the more people using this, the more people will want to be found on it.
But will independent tourism business finally be able to get direct access to travellers without brokers and affiliates clogging up the channels?
Will it eventually hit the brokers and affiliate's margins, or will it be just yet another channel to spam?
On another note, if you load up the Keyhole Community BBS in the built-in browser, you can click placemark links and they will automatically in the earth viewer... this thing integrates really well with the web.
Looks to me like this thing could eventually BE google's OS...
Got to Chiang Mai and found Doi Suthep (famous temple) that I've visited many times before. What clarity. What a blast...Well done KeyHole/Google, this is great!
The mind reels at the potential uses, particularly once this hits PDAs, mobile phones, and other portable devices.
