Google Earth 5 Released with Great Ocean Features

The new Google Earth 5 was released today.  There’s a big summary post of some of the new ocean features at Google Earth Blog.   Highlights:

  • 3D ocean bathymetry and ocean surface is now shown.
  • You can dive under the ocean surface to see the 3D sea floors
  • You can create underwater KML and 3D models
  • Recorded tours to show specific features you want people to see in Google Earth
  • Lots of Ocean-related layers
  • A new Ocean Expedition layer for tracking ocean expeditions!

Here is a video I created showing the new ocean features:



Expect to see this blog take advantage of many of these new features to show off our trip!
