Zoom in to earth

Google Earth created a lot of buzz right from the moment it started. Initially, it seemed as an amazing use of technology that already exists, but for a totally different set of users. With Google Earth 3D browser, you can zoom in to street level pretty much anywhere in the world. You can visit great monuments such as the Grand Canyon, the Eiffel Tower and the Coliseum in Rome, all from sitting at home.

Besides practical uses such as getting driving directions and maps to anywhere in the world, which I find extremely useful, the system can also be used for a variety of fun purposes, such as seeing your favorite star homes, checking if the fishing boats are back in the harbor or even if the ski slopes are up and running.
