Google Earth gets revival with tools for exploration
Apr 19, 2017, 09:40
The tours are not like the stuff we have seen before. And just in time for Earth Day, Google is giving it a major upgrade.
You can try out the new Google Earth now on Chrome browsers.
Perhaps one of the coolest new features is Google EarthVoyager. Led by scientists, documentary makers and various other similar experts, Google has vested a lot of effort into making the app a knowledge hub. Also available are video journeys to six different habitats produced by BBC Earth, and a kid-friendly jaunt to Mexico with Sesame Street muppet Lola, to learn about Mayan ruins. Then head to Gombe National Park in Tanzania and hear from Jane Goodall about her team's chimpanzee research and conservation efforts. Instead of the typical flat satellite imagery, you get handsome shots that make Google Earth feel more immersive than ever before. Another new feature in Earth is the Google search staple "I'm feeling lucky", which, as you can probably guess, can take you to an unexpected location at a whim. As expected, on clicking this button, you are transferred to a random location in the 3D mapping service - be it lush green islands off the Swahili coast or hot springs in Japan.

Start with the majestic Grand Canyon, and the attractive Château de Chambord manor house in France. They can click the link to jump right to where you were (virtually) standing.
The company has also brought in a version of its search engine's "I'm feeling lucky" feature. For instance, a collection called "This is Home", highlights traditional houses around the world like reed houses in Peru or Bedouin tents in Jordan. It's an exploration of homes around the world in various cultures, offering a fascinating insight into a Greenlandic IIoq or a Peruvian chuclla. Google says it will bring them to iOS later in the coming months.
