    Google Earth 5: Brief Tutorial and Review

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Since the very first release of Google Earth, I have watched and tested this product with interest. It's a marvelous and useful human invention, software with an amazing power to scan the earth’s geographical surface and provide accurate distances between two locations. Google Earth 5 offers even more. Let's take a look.

    The early releases of Google Earth appeared to lack detail and were difficult to use, but I have seen significant improvements in user functionality, useful features and the way the information is being presented with Google Earth 5. That's enough background information; what is new with Google Earth 5?

    Google Earth 5 now has the ability to analyze oceans and marine life in general. These new features include the following:

    • Explore the Ocean – You can spot key and remarkable places in the oceans, you can see how the trenches look, spot how rough the ocean floor is, learn the location of the Mid Atlantic Ridge and many others, even see documentation of underwater volcanic eruption.
    • Find the Locations of Famous Shipwrecks – With Google Earth 5, you can see the actual location for where the biggest battleship went down (IJN Yamato). You can also find out where the world famous RMS Titanic sank.
    • Identify Protected Marine Areas or Sanctuaries – If you plan to visit protected marine sanctuaries but just cannot find them using an ordinary map, Google Earth 5 will show you the sections of the Earth's oceans that are protected.
    • Examine Underwater Features – If you are a pro diver or an oceanographer, you may need Google Earth 5 to learn where the most beautiful underwater features are found.
    • Animal Tracking – Learn in detail where those humpback whales are found, find out where those blue fin tuna can be located. Animal tracking features include videos of explorers taking the plunge or diving in the seas.

    These are just the key new features appearing in Google Earth 5; as usual you can still see the zoomed-in snapshots/high quality satellite images of land-based geographical views aside from the new ocean features.

    Splendid view of Marianas and Philippine trench seen clearly as black lines (deep section) of ocean floor.

    The aim of this article is to guide a beginning user to get the most out of their use of Google Earth 5, as well as to provide user reviews of this product.
