Google has announced the release of Google Earth 6. The latest version is available today for Windows, OS X and Linux.
he Google Maps Street View experience is now fully integrated into Google Earth. Pegman (the little guy that represents your Street View position) is now docked alongside the Google Earth navigation controls, where he launches Street View just like he does in Google Maps. The difference here is that you can go from orbiting the earth to standing in front of your childhood home. It may be a little disorienting.
3D Trees – While Google Earth has supported 3D buildings for some time, trees were only recently added to liven up the environments. The addition allows those using walking navigations to take direct paths and â€” as the video illustrates â€” not walk into trees. It also keeps the landscape from looking like a desolate wasteland.
