Google + Keyhole = Google Earth

Google Earth (currently beta), the future replacement for Keyhole, shows remarkable improvements in global data visualization. Major additions include 3D buildings, public transit routes and what is “likely the largest scale, highest resolution, natural color database of the earth’s visual appearance and terrain surface ever assembled.”(Keyhole Primary Database)

    I used that back when it was still Keyhole’s software. Pretty cool. I orientated myself with the Las Vegas street plan prior to going there to prevent getting lost in a drunken state. It served me well.

    I’ve been in the Colosseum in Rome. Now that’s an amazing place. I’d love to go back in time and sit in a sell-out Colosseum watching navy battles or gladiators knock eachother out.
