Google Earth comes to the iPhone and StreetView goes to Spain

Filed under: Site News — by at 6:00 pm on Monday, October 27, 2008

A couple of cool new things today:

Google Earth is now available as a free app for the iPhone.  Not only is it free, but it’s good!  It looks very similar to the normal Google Earth program, includes 3D terrain, Wikipedia/Panoramio icons and a few other goodies.  No 3D buildings, but that’s not a problem for now.  The interface is phenomenal, with superb gesture controls and even a bit of accelerometer support.  My wish for version 2 is that they offer some kind of KML support so we can push our own files out to it.

Google Maps StreetView is now in Spain.  They’ve added StreetView to four Spanish cities — Madrid, SevillaValencia and Barcelona. As you find cool sights in those areas, be sure to post them to our StreetView section, which now has nearly 2500 locations in it!

Version 2.2 of the iPhone firmware should be out in a few weeks and promises to have StreetView support, so that will be kind of a mesh of these two items.  Hopefully the interface on that is as good as it is in the new Google Earth application.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think about if you added
some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website
could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.

Excellent blog!

later. All the best
