Google Earth browser plugin


By

The lads--probably some of them anyway--who brought us Google Earth have put their heads together, created and released the Google Earth Plugin, which brings the magic and majesty of the web giant's interactive planet to your browser, assuming you're running either Safari 3.1+ and Firefox 3.x.

Here's some spin

The Google Earth Plug-in and its JavaScript API let you embed Google Earth, a true 3D digital globe, into your web pages. Using the API you can draw markers and lines, drape images over the terrain, add 3D models, or load KML files, allowing you to build sophisticated 3D map applications. If you have an existing Maps API site, you can 3D-enable your page with as little as one line of code

For those of you who already have webpages with integrated Google Maps, you'll want to pop over to the Google Maps API page.

Also, if you're an iPhone or iPod touch owner and you're also a Google Earth, you really should Google Earth for iPhone, which aside from its obvious utility can be used to impress friends and grade school age children for a solid five minutes or so.
