Calif. – Google (NASD: GOOG) has added an
"Earth" view to its Google Maps service, providing users with the
ability to browse integrated 3D images from its Google Earth service. "So
if you’re one of the hundreds of millions of people who use Maps worldwide, you
can now explore the world in luxuriantly-detailed, data-rich 3D imagery and
terrain from Google Earth," the company said in a blog post. Users will
need to have installed the Google Earth plugin to access the new feature.
