Google Earth now lets you create virtual tours and presentations

Google Earth doesn't seem to get a lot of attention these days, but Google is still putting some work into it. Today, the Mountain View giant announced new creation tools for Google Earth on the web, allowing users to create presentations and stories based on real-life landmarks.

The tools are pretty interesting in that you can look up any location you want and add it to a presentation in a way that allows you to fly from each place to the next. While you can build off of data in Google Earth, including default descriptions and pictures, you can customize the information to your liking, and it'll affect only your specific presentation. You can add custom images and text to describe a location, in addition to custom 3D views. You can also adjust the coordinates for each location, if you want to focus on more specific points on the map.

Presentations can be saved to Google Drive, and they even support co-authoring, so you can work on a project with other people. Once saved, presentations can be shared with anyone, and while creation tools are only available on the web, the resulting presentations can be viewed in the Google Earth app for Android and iOS.

If you'd like to try out the new creation tools, you can visit Google Earth's website to get started.
