Earth View in Google Maps


Over 600 million people have used Google Earth
to explore the world around them. They’ve traveled to the highest mountains and to the
depths of the ocean. They’ve seen the world’s tallest buildings and the busiest cities.
And they’ve even been transported to ancient times in faraway lands. Now, we’re bringing
all of this stunning 3D imagery and terrain to the web browser, with Earth view in Google
Maps. Simply go to Google Maps, and click the Earth button. If you don’t already have
the Google Earth plugin installed, you’ll be prompted to download it. Let’s start
by exploring Florence, Italy. You can get a closer look by using the slider to zoom
in. And you can pan around either by clicking the arrows here or by dragging the map. You
can also look around by clicking these arrows. Now that we’ve worked up our appetites,
let’s find a place to get some gelato nearby. You can click the markers to learn more about
places. Next, let’s take a trip to Niagara Falls. You can change your view by clicking
on the Map button. To go back to the 3D view, just click the Earth button. Let’s take
a closer look by double-clicking to zoom in. You can also tilt your view by holding down
