Google Earth Turns 10


Happy Birthday Google…err Happy Birthday Google Earth.

Holy, we almost forgot that Google launched on one the most spectacular offerings – Google Earth a decade ago. In 2005 a team of Google engineers with the help of satellites created a virtual representation of Mother Earth with images and data sets.

Over the last 10 years its empowered not only school kids but also NASA scientists to explore Earth.

To celebrate a decade of existence, the Google team launched two new features – Voyager and Earth View

– A new layer that will help you find the most imaginary photos and 3 D images from across the globe.


You can choose to see more than 1000 voyager locations from across the globe.

Earth View
– As the name suggests, its the view of the Earth (pictures of places on Earth) taken from the source satellite.
