Google Earth

Where is it possible to travel anywhere without leaving the comfort of your home? The answer is Google Earth. This site enables you to swoop from outer space to street level and leap from one building top to another. It maps the earth by the obtaining images from satellite imagery, aerial photography and GIS 3D globe. Google Earth displays satellite images of varying resolution of the Earth’s surface, allowing users to visually see things like houses and cars from a bird’s eye view. This means one can view the Grand Canyon or Mount Everest in three dimensions, instead of 2D like other map programs/sites.
