3D and Aerial Imagery Comes to Google Earth for Android

Share

Google Earth is one of my “must install apps” for Android tablets that are going to be used in schools. Today, Google Earth for Android received a major update in the form of 3D and aerial imagery.

According to Google’s blog post, the update will allow you to navigate in 3D through Boulder, Boston, Santa Cruz, San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Antonio, Charlotte, Tucson, Lawrence, Portland, Tampa, Rome and the San Francisco Bay Area. There are short tours of these places and many more. Much like a tour in the desktop version of Google Earth, the tours on the Android version of Google Earth include snippets of information about the places that you virtually visit.
