Google Earth brings GIS to the everyday people

June 30th, 2005

Google Earth is a Java-based GIS application that allows users to find places on the face of the Earth. The users can zoom from space down to street level and combine imagery, 3D geography, maps, and business data to get the total picture in seconds.

I love it! If your computer meets these requirements, give it a try.

It took me 15 mins to find the place where I used live in Hong Kong in Google Earth.
