Google Earth Integrates Wikipedia

googearth.pngI finally got back on Google Earth bandwagon this week after a long absence, and check out all the sweet DC-centric stuff on there! Look at all those wikipedia spots, and pictures that are just tied directly into Google Earth. Very sweet. Add in the Metro stations and other transit options that were already there and you’ve got one helluva service. Oh, and it’s free.

    Thanks for the news flash, I’ll jump in my way-back machine and tell myself last year to check out the new feature!

    If you geotag your Flickr photos, then “Fly to” the location in Google Earth, it will remember the spot and add a thumbnail with a link back to the photo.

    Google Earth is da bomb.

    I wish I knew when metblogs kicked Breaux’s puppy.
