Google Earth gets a big update

Google has updated their popular world mapping software with new features like ocean imagery, historical and touring. The newly updated Google Earth 5.0 allows users to take a trip back in time with the historical imagery, where available to see how land and buildings have changed over the years.

One of the biggest updates is the ocean view, where users can view and browse ocean levels that take users on a tour of selected places, with images taken from partnership programs, like National Geographic. The update gives users the chance to experience images and videos from around the globe, showing detailed images from just below the surface.

Google Earth 5.0 also comes with a touring feature where users can record, save and playback recorded sessions from any angle, for playback later. The update also includes a look at Mars in 3-D, where users can view the red planet in high-revolutionary imagery.
